Newcastle upon Tyne is a city sandwiched between Tyne and wear in northeast England. The monument of the modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge is symbolic of these two cities. Newcastle is an entire hub of arts, science and all kinds of businesses. During the modern times, it was a huge manufacturing hub.
While there is the great infrastructure to watch upon, there are also a lot of places to roam and enjoy the beauty of the city.
- Beamish Museum
This is a recreation of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian life with costumed staff, plus trams and buses. I’ve visited this place the second time.
- Gateshead Millennium Bridge
The Gateshead millennium bridge is an iconic modern bridge over the Tyne, offering separate sections for pedestrians & cyclists. The serenity is amazing and becomes even more amazing at night. The bridge has two paths cross, one solely for pedestrians and the other for cyclists along with pedestrians. Grab a drink and relax, watch the bridge go up for the boat trips and has an amazing time.
