Due to the coronavirus pandemic in the UK, all Newcastle City Guides activity is on hold until further notice. Please check back for more information.

That includes the scheduled Grey's Monument tours. The first April tour has been cancelled and those booked on have been refunded. The team are monitoring the situation as it unfolds to see if the subsequent May, June and July events will also need to be cancelled - those booked onto these tours will be notified directly if this is the case.

  • Visitors booked onto a Grey's Monument Tour will be contacted directly via email and offered a refund if their tour is cancelled.
  • If you have a Newcastle City Guide Season Ticket, this will be valid for any tours and events that do take place later in the year. If you currently have a season ticket, we would like to honour these for all 2021 activity so they will roll into the new year free of charge.
  • Please check back or visit Facebook and Twitter to see further updates about guided tours by Newcastle City Guides.
