I have always thought getting cheap flights to and booking a cheap hotel room in Newcastle is going to be difficult considering the average level of my income, but the way the whole trip played out was fascinating. I have been planning for the trip before last November but of cause my office boss won’t release me not until a few weeks to Christmas. I did some researching on the internet for the phrase cheap flights and hotels and what it returned was worth looking into.
After the show with my office and the booking, I set for the journey on the 9th of December. I got to Newcastle on the morning of the 10th which was a Thursday. Any tourist would love this city. Right from the Newcastle International Airport I took a Metro Light Rail system to the city center-6 miles to the main center of the city. But one thing I have noticed is the diverse in the cross section of city. As there were places for the riches so also are places for the poor, but in general the city is a magnificent. Here are the tourist attractions
The Gateshead Millennium Bridge
Due to the many waterways in Newcastle there are many bridges that could make impression on one but the one I really think make the most impression on me is the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, popularly called the “Blinking Eye. I don’t think I have seen this type of bridge before now. Leaving the bridge, I went to see the quay side and other bridges in Tyne. And oh it gets lovely even more. These places are cosmopolitan areas with restaurants and bars and places to sit or stand and watch river Tyne.
I visited many theatres like the theatre Royal on Grey Street and the Journal Tyne Theatre. There are also many more.
The nightlife in this city is magnificent. I discovered it wasn’t a lie as I have read somewhere that this city is a fun loving city. There are many night clubs and bars that will stay opened until late in the night with everyone have fun.
Chinatown is also in Newcastle which is the center of carnivals. They celebrate the Chinese New Year annually.
Moreover, there are many more places one can visit like the fascinating St. James’ Park-A football stadium.
Think of Newcastle on your next holiday.
