Newcastle Upon Tyne

Whey aye man! If you’re looking for a day out to combat the January blues, Newcastle Upon Tyne is the canniest destination. Our coaches are available to hire for day trips and other occasions.

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art

Technically the centre is in Gateshead, but either way it’s a must-see attraction in Newcastle with four floors housing ever-changing exhibitions. The centre has unrivalled views of the Tyne bridges and you can check out the kittiwake colony: one of the furthest-inland nesting sites in the world.

Quayside Market

On a Sunday, a market takes over Newcastle’s famous Quayside. If you fancy a bite to eat street food vendors galore. The market sells local produce, arts and crafts and other knick-knacks. The perfect place to go for a stroll. Stunning views of the River Tyne.

Millennium Bridge

The world’s first and only tilting bridge, the Millennium Bridge is a one-of-a-kind monument. The bridge tilts to let larger vessels go down the River Tyne. If you’re lucky you’ll get to see the bridge in action, with the bridge only taking 4.5 minutes to open.

Bessie Surtree House

A romantic Jacobean home on Newcastle’s Quayside. Bessie Surtee house contains many period features and you can see back to the days of the 16th and 17th centuries. Bessie became famous for eloping after escaping a first-floor window to marry John Scott, who later became Lord Chancellor of England.

Ouseburn Farm

Located in the artsy Ouseburn area of Newcastle is this small, charming inner-city farm. The farm has been around since 1976 when parents from Byker bought land so their children could have access to nature. The farm is a working farm today with animals big and small for you to meet!
