Day out

UK Tour: Newcastle

Hello and Welcome Back! Last week I had a week off work so decided to go on a tour of the UK. Covering Newcastle, Edinburgh, Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham, Stratford Upon Avon and Oxford. Of course, I took my camera so I have lots of days out posts coming up for you. 

I started my trip in Newcastle Upon Tyne. I got a National Express Coach from London and arrived in Newcastle at 6:30am. Bright and Early! It was lovely to explore the city whilst it was quiet. I have been before but never noticed how stunning the buildings are. 

Grey’s Monument

After a walk around the city centre it was time for breakfast. Filmore and Union is my favourite place for breakfast in the UK. They do amazing food for everyone, including gluten free and vegan. It is reasonably priced as well.

To drink I had Raw Cacao Smoothie which had cacao, peanut butter, almond milk and agave syrup. For food, I had a maple syrup pancake with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit. It was incredibly fluffy and delicious!

All fuelled up after breakfast I walked to Newcastle Castle. I had never been before but was excited to learn more. In the basement there is a short video clip which gave you an overview of the castle. This helped to explain what you are looking at as you are walking around. 

The highlight of the castle was the view from the top of the tower. You could see the whole city and as the weather was stunning it was beautiful. Totally worth the 99 steps to get to the top!

Tyne Bridge

After I walked to the Baltic Contemporary Art Centre which is free to enter. Of course, I had to take some photos on the way.

The Baltic Centre has art galleries which are worth a look around. I visited the viewing gallery and viewed the city from the another angle.

On my walk back into the city centre I watched the Millennium Bridge rise up. Which was impressive! 

I just had to get a few more photos of the Quayside.

The Sage

Once back in the city centre I got the Metro from Monument to Tynemouth which only took 23 minutes. In Tynemouth Station there was a market filled with food and hand made goods. I then headed straight to the coast. The view was stunning and there is something so calming about being near the sea. A nice surprise was the castle.

So that was my day in Newcastle. Have you ever been to Newcastle? If so what is your favourite thing to do?
