    Back to the 70s


    A pleasant enough hotel on the main street in nice Newcastle suburb of Jesmond. This is the kind of hotel where bus tours stop and businessmen stay through the week. Clean and welcoming it is in desperate need of an update and more modern colour schemes in the room. The orange walls and blue doors in my room were garish and the patterned carpet must have been all the rage in 1976.
    That aside the restaurant and bar area is nice. There is a small lounge near reception and a patio area at the back. Full marks to the staff who are helpful but forgot my requested early morning call.
    The breakfast was one of the best ever but the evening meal in the restaurant was overpriced and had no vegetables or salad with the steak and chips. I suggest you eat in one of the many restaurants in the area if you stay here. Oh - and they only have Lionel Richies Greatest Hits playing over and over again in the restaurant which brings me back to the 1970s...

    Directions: Near to West Jesmond Metro station

Daughter's 21st birthday celebrations

by pearson_joan

Hi, we are coming to Newcastle to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday and wonder if anyone can recommend a nice restaurant with a good atmosphere? We have heard of Cafe 21 but do not know of anyone who has eaten there. Does anyone know of it and what it is like? Any other suggestions most welcome.

Hi, I live in Newcastle and hope I can help. I have never been to Cafe 21 before but I can recommend Azzuri. This is an Italian restaurant which is also on the quayside (Forster St, Byker, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 2). Decor is fresh and funky with fresh exotic flowers everywhere. The food is really tasty and they have a good selection.
There are of course hundreds of restaurants in newcastle it depends what you're looking for. Have you tried looking on
Afterwards you could take a walk along the quayside. See the bridges all lit up and stop at any bars that take your fancy. Happy birthday to your daughter.

Just realized that I forgot to say thank you for the advice. We are coming this weekend so really looking forward to it.

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Quayside Development

by sandysmith

The 1990's saw the transformation of the derlict docks on the east quayside of Newcastle to the modern splendour of today with the Batic Art Centre linked by the blinking Gateshead Millenium Bridge with its pedestrian and cycle paths. Interesting art work can be seen along the quayside too. This was probably the best part of Newcastle for me and in many ways was similar to the Salford Docks rejuvenation scheme.

Belsay Castle

by stevezero

Belsay Castle is a 14th century stone three storey tower house, founded by John de Strivelyn. The impressive unaltered tower, is crowned by four round corner bartizan's, standing above the machicolated parapet. In the vaulted basement is a kitchen with a well and above is a hall and a solar, both with fireplaces and tall traceried windows with seats. There is a north wing of four storeys and in the southwest corner, a spiral stair and six small rooms.

Admission Charge
Adults - £5.50 for hall, castle and grounds

In Belsay, 20kms NW of Newcastle on A696 (OS Map 88; ref NZ 088785)

Eldon Gardens

by steventilly

Eldon Gardens is basically an extension to Eldon Square. It stands across the road and is linked by a covered walkway. Now filled with shops selling such things as aromatherapy goods and health foods, it was once a fine victorian arcade, The Handyside Arcade.
We used to go here often when I was young, to visit the record, poster, and 'hippy' clothing shops that filled this arcade. I think it's 'modernisation' is a loss to the city.

Pre football match specials

by ouate12

Newcastle has to have the best pre match entertainment that I have seen in the country which gives home and away fans a chance to drink and have fun before the game.
The best location for this is in the Bigg Market. The pre match includes exotic dancers, pie eating and drinking competitions. The famous Geordie dancer and also the dangerous curry hell.

Away fans are normally welcome as long as you are up for a laught and some serious micky taking.

Best Bars include the Vaults Idols and POP. Action kicks off about 3 hours before the game.

The Side Photographic Gallery

by jayhawk2000

A small gallery which is always worth a look for its chaging exhibits of photographs. On our last visit the theme was 'Documenting the Tyne' although they don't always specialise in local topics.

The rooms are small and full of character, linked by steep and creaking steps. They have an excellent selection of unique posters from past shows, plus some hard to find books. Admission is free and their website has samples of the collection.

Closed Mondays, open 11-5 Tuesday-Sunday. You will find it at 9 Side directly below the Tyne Bridge. Look for this sign up an alleyway at the bottom of the Side. If you are heading uphill and see the Crown Posada pub on the left, you've just missed it.

Next door is a new 50-seat cinema showing an assortment of classics, indies, queer cinema, kids films and arthouse flicks. Often these are themed to link in with the gallery exhibition:
