Latest releases too for only £2.50 per night or over the weekend. They really try and engage with the local community too running events, not just book and history based, but on different... More

Often pop in for lunch and coffee during dinner break, prices are very good and always a choice of toasties, soup, sandwiches and cakes etc. Very popular and always quite busy, but service good and friendly, free parking which is always a plus.

Nice library, cafe, information centre and arts venue. It's quite far from the centre of Gateshead so I wouldn't bother if you were only visiting for the weekend unless you were stopping on route to the Shipley museum or Saltwell Park.

The lady I saw provided all the information I asked for, bus timetables, walks etc. The historical self-guided walks are worth doing.
