No, it's about 9 miles down river from Newcastle.
So when will you be there
You could catch a taxi to Tynemouth instead of going to Newcastle just a 10 mins ride. It is a lovely village with a medieval priory and a nice front street with plenty of bars and restaurants. There is a nice sea front to walk along and if you are there at the weekend ther is an indoor market at the metro station.
