NewcastleGateshead has plenty to see and do within the city, but there's also a world of experiences beyond in nearby Northumberland, County Durham and along the stunning North East coastline.

From the city to the stunning coast and rugged countryside, there are many ways to get outdoors and enjoy the wide-open space only a short drive outside of NewcastleGateshead. The North East is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK with miles of sandy coastline and scenic views; perfect for a day out with the kids, building sandcastles and splashing in the cool North Sea. The Northumberland countryside also provides a great day out thanks to its quaint English villages, National Trust sites like Wallington and Cragside and luscious green nature reserves as well as award-winning attractions like The Alnwick Garden and its spectacular Treehouse Restaurant.
