Guided City Walking Tour of Newcastle

109 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.

So proud to have this gallery in Newcastle. Went to see the de Morgan show, which was great. But the staff and covid awarness were superb. A welcoming, educational and stimulating experience. Well done all concerned.

A small but nonetheless charming gallery that represents the life and culture of Newcastle and the Northeast. Art works range across the ages and skilfully depict the region up to modern times. It's free to enter but like with nearly every other gallery on the planet, certain exhibits have an entrance fee. My favourite painting has to be the blinking cat. You can even buy him on a Tea Towel.

This is one of my favourite Art Galleries in the U.K, never mind Newcastle, yet a number of my friends did not know of its existance! The exibits cover a wide range of North Eastern art, from silverware, glassware,china,phographs and of course the amasing paintings, the Grimshaws in particular. Grainger Street by Louis H Grimshaw is one of my favourite paintings, but there is also a delightful Lowry. Apart from the exhibits, there is a very good cafe in a subperb setting. All in all, the Laing is a really good place to spend the entire day, and then go back!

Response from TyneandWearMuseums, Julie Milne, Chief Curator at Laing Art Gallery
Responded Mar 10, 2020
Thank you for visiting the Laing Art Gallery although I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed. We do have an admission charge for some of our major exhibitions although there are always exhibitions and displays on show which you can visit for free, including our collection displays of outstanding 19th and 20th century paintings and decorative art - a new display called Over 100 Years of Collecting opens on 28 March. A range of concession tickets are also available for groups including senior citizens, younger visitors and those who are unemployed, plus free tickets for children. All income generated from exhibition ticket sales supports our ambitious exhibition programme and helps to keep the permanent collection free for everyone to enjoy. I hope you can visit us again in the future.
