Tier 3 restrictions across NewcastleGateshead and the North East means that indoor attractions and entertainment venues will remain closed. However, we can now spend time outside with friends and family outside our household or bubble which means that following the rule of six, you can visit public parks and gardens, take a stroll at the coast or head into the countryside for some fresh air. An excellent way to look after yourselves and protect your mental health during these rollercoaster times, is to get some exercise (try swimming at Newcastle City Baths or kayaking in the North Sea with CBK's Adventure Co.) both of which are allowed to stay open in all tiers. Check out our update on which attractions are open in NewcastleGateshead here
