Guided City Walking Tour of Newcastle

106 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.

A great little area, next to Grey Street and Grey Monument. Pretty much the same as its neighbouring street with plenty of shops bars and restaurants and lovely buildings.

The centre of Newcastle where it has not been destroyed by the dreadful cheap architecture of the 1960 era onwards is a testament to its prosperity. Large sweeps of elegant buildings with gorgeous arcades (alas often only if you look up and ignore the tatty shop fronts) need form the quayside up to the higher ground around the station and the cathedral and the modern shopping areas. Always worth a stroll.

I absolutely love this place. Love the history and the beautiful, old buildings. The shops are average though that's why it's 4 stars.
