Newcastle is full of things to do while you’re here.

In the city centre, you’ll find lots to do, from shopping at the intu Eldon Square (one of the UK’s largest city centre shopping complexes), or in some of the many boutiques, to visiting the Quayside with its many restaurants.

If you want to explore further afield, only a short train or bus journey will take you to preserved sections of the world-famous Hadrian’s Wall, set in beautiful countryside dotted with castles and stately homes.

Head further north and you’ll find Kielder Water and Forest Park, which includes the biggest man-made lake in northern Europe and the largest working forest in England.
