Guided City Walking Tour of Newcastle

111 reviews
The tour offers more sights than some other tours of the beautiful city of Newcastle. On it you will hear about the history of the city from the Iron Age to present day, and also about some of the city's more interesting characters.<br><br>The tour is less than 4km, does include some steps, and some uneven pavement.<br><br>Please come prepared according to the weather forecast for that day. <br><br>In the event of bad weather, please contact me through the message option here on TripAdvisor to see if the tour is still going ahead. Weather cancellations will be very rare.

We drove into centre for an early tea as we were staying in Gateshead and then made our way down to the Quayside to go over the Millenium bridge to get up high on the far side to watch the sun setting and we were not the only ones, then gradually watch it go slower darker and then lights come on on the millenium bridge and all the other bridges. We walked down the Quayside right the way down after crossing back to the main centre side over the millenium bridge and took some lovely photos of the various bridges lit up. It was a lovely evening weatherwise in September so we were very fortunate.

The quayside is well worth seeing especially if you've got your camera with you and even better if you've decided to go a little later when the lights are lit up on the bridges. The traffic on the bridges is probably slacker in the evening but it's still fairly busy but don't let it put you off.

The most beautiful river walk in the UK. Not much more to say. Food, drinks, art, beautiful buildings and bridges.
