Daytime entertainment in Newcastle

Posted on:

Newcastle is a vibrant and exciting city which is frequently a destination of choice for people looking to take a weekend city break in the UK. If you’re planning a trip, and want to sample the history around the area after you’ve seen all the city centre has to offer, here are some destinations within driving distance for you to enjoy.

Angel of the North

One of the most iconic landmark in the UK, you’ll pass the Angel on the drive north to Newcastle. Just ten minutes outside the city limits of Newcastle, the nearby location means you can easily nip out to visit the contemporary sculpture and return to the city within a couple of hours. The iconic 66 ft Anthony Gormley piece was described as having three-fold significance ‘first, to signify that beneath the site of its construction, coal miners worked for two centuries; second, to grasp the transition from an industrial to information age, and third, to serve as a focus for our evolving hopes and fears’.

Bamburgh Castle

If you’re wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre for an afternoon, then take the hour long drive up the North Northumberland Heritage Coast and pay a visit to Bamburgh Castle. With breathtaking views and true history on offer, you can spend hours exploring the castle and grounds of this Grade I listed building.

St James’ Park

If you’re in the city for the weekend, then make sure you plan the date to correspond with a Newcastle United home fixture. The Premier League outfit might not be perennial title challengers, however over recent years have played some great football which has seen them challenging for a place in Europe. With a capacity of over 50,000 and a rich history including greats like Alan Shearer and Kevin Keegan, join the Geordies for 90 minutes of passion fuelled sport.

Intu Eldon Square

If you’re after an afternoon of shopping, Newcastle offers a number of options. If you want the shopping centre feel, Gateshead’s Metro Centre is a short drive away, however if you plan on a casual window shop in the heart of the city, Intu Eldon Square has a host of big name fashion brands along with all your high street favourites. The indoor centre compliments the retail on offer through the city centre, so whether you’re after the latest fashion trend in All Saints, or just want a browse through Next, you have plenty of options available.
