About North East

A compact area with so much to do
Visit the North East and you’ll find so much to do, whether you prefer the buzz of town and city life or you’d rather escape to the countryside.

Newcastle and Gateshead is rich in the arts, while Durham has its magnificent cathedral and castle. The coastline offers endless opportunities for clip-top walks and all kinds of watersports.

The area has its fare share of landmarks too, such as the Gateshead Millennium bridge, Hadrian’s Wall and Antony Gormley’s Angel of the North.

Five FREE things to do

The Great North Museum, Newcastle
Houses a life-size T-Rex dinosaur skeleton, planetarium, objects from the Ancient Greeks and mummies form Ancient Egypt. There’s also an interactive model of Hadrian’s Wall.

Allen Banks and Staward Gorge, Hexham
Enjoy stunning gorge and river scenery when you take your pick from miles of tranquil, way-marked walks through ornamental and ancient woods.

Arbeia Roman Fort and Museum, South Shields
The fort was originally built to house a garrison. Today its excavated remains and stunning reconstructions of original buildings give unique insights into life in Roman Britain.

Cauldron Snout, Middleton-in-Teessdale (7miles), County Durham
A cascade of falls frothing down a total drop of 200 feet. To get there, walk 1½ miles along a maintained path to the top of the falls enjoying a wide moorland landscape.

The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear
The Baltic is the major international centre for contemporary art. On the south bank of the River Tyne, it offers much to see and do for adults and children.
