NEWCASTLE WITH MY DAUGHTER

by MARCUSMARCUS

ANY OTHER QUESTION. FOR 31/12/2006 I'LL CAME WITH MY FAMILY (WIFE AND A BABY 8 MONTHS OLD) IS A GOOD IDEA. PLACE TO MAKE FOOT FOR HER?

I'm not quite sure what you mean; are you staying in a hotel? Most hotels can provide facilities for babies (but check before you come) and most will have somewhere you can boil a kettle for formula, or warm up baby food. Many cafes and restaurants will do this too, although not all; it is best to ask when you go in.

Newcastle is perfectly ok for babies and children, although it will probably be quite cold and wet at the end of December. Make sure you have enough warm clothes for your baby (hat and mittens too), and something waterproof to cover her when you go out.

Well, it will be very busy and noisy towards the end of the evening, obviously, probably with lots of drunken people around. I don't think I'd take a small baby to a city centre New Year's Eve anywhere, not just Newcastle, but that's a personal choice.

If going to the Metro centre for shopping there is a great family Italian restuarant which I used to work at many year ago however they will aways take great care of children and cook or heat any food you need for the baby. It is called Romano's. Enjoy your trip!

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Educational Excellence...

by steventilly

Newcastle University started life as a school of medicine in 1834. Since then it has grown to become one of the countries leading Universities and still covers Medicine and Dentistry. The university occupies a large single site on the edge of the city centre, only a couple of minutes walk away. Some of the original old buildings still exist, but much of the university is in modern buildings.

Shoppers Paradise

by cheekymarieh

Newcastle has a great shopping centre with Eldon Square being the most impressive area for shopping. In winter you must take time out to go and look at the Christmas display in the window of Fenwicks. They always have some fantastic displays.

Geordie

by Grootpiet

If for the first 10 mins you don't understand a word your taxi driver is saying (and they love to talk), he's probably a Geordie... a strange local dialect of English, heavily influenced by Scandinavian languages and scottish.

The most enjoyable Geordie saying I heard was '*** oot' (hmm... the T-word seems to auto-edit in VT), normally shouted outside of the clubs by guys and followed by a brief flash if the lady seems fit...

Kittiwakes

by toonsarah

Look up at the stone towers that support the great span of the Tyne Bridge and you'll spot the nests of the kittiwakes. This is the world's furthest inland breeding colony of these birds, who unlike other gulls haven't adapted to living off man's scraps but still live entirely on fish. Now that the River Tyne is clean again after many years of pollution there are plenty of fish to be caught there as well as out in the North Sea beyond the river's mouth. The kittiwakes nesting here must think these great stone towers are cliffs of course.

The bridge is now considered an important breeding site for these birds, but their nests are threatened by the complaints of nearby residents who dislike the noise and mess they cause. I don’t live here so perhaps it’s unfair of me to comment, but I think it would be a real shame if they were prevented from nesting through the introduction of netting round the towers as has been proposed.

You'll probably also be able to spot cormorants down by the water near here too – they often perch on the columns on either side of the Millennium Bridge and stick out their wings to dry.

Hartlepool's Historic Quay

by margaretvn

Go to Hartlepool and visit the Historic Quay. This is a really good recreation of an 18th century seaport, with its shops and naval outfitters, stalls and seamen.You are taken back to the time of Nelson. There is an audio-visual about the press-gang, and one about a naval sea battle where you experience with the ships surgeon.
