transport after midnight to airport

by aegialichick

Hi! I will be arriving in central Newcastle after midnight and have to catch a flight at 6 the next morning. How will i get to the airport at this time of night? Will the metro still be running? I've never been to Newcastle before so any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Might help, though it's a bit clumsy. Looks as if you'll be able to get there by bus at least!

The station taxis are a little expensive I suggust you ring Blue Line taxis 01912626666 and they will meet you outside the station, this will be alot cheaper and safer than the metro(they be off!!)bearing in mind it is only about 6 miles to the airport about 15 minutes in the taxi,

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

one of the nicest areas of...

by wild_wrose

one of the nicest areas of Newcastle city now is the quayside which has recently been 'retouched'
but I would recommend anyone to explore the outlying areas too if possible. I love being near the river, go and see the new Millenium bridge, beauty and an engineering marvel.

Almost a refletion..

by sandysmith

The breeze on the Tyne during our visit was not condusive to one of my longed for reflection shots so I had to settle for this view of the Tyne Bridge in the glass window on the viewing terrace of the Batlic Mill. Thee's was another shot of the Millenium Bridge but this was slightly better. Thanks for the idea Sabsi!

Northumbrian pipes

by toonsarah

These traditional North Eastern instruments (played here by a busker on the Quayside) work on a similar principle to the Scottish bagpipe but while the sound is related, it's softer in tone. Some Northumbrians claim that Northumbrian pipes are best heard indoors, while the Scottish pipes are best outdoors, preferably from a distance of twenty miles away (I disagree – I love the Scottish bagpipes too).

There are actually two kinds – the Smallpipes and the Border or Half-long pipes. Both are played by inflating the "bag" with bellows held under one arm (rather than by blowing into it as with Scottish bagpipes) whilst the other arm is used to gently deflate the bag through the various "pipes".

The origins of the Northumbrian pipes are apparently unknown, though I rather like the almost certainly erroneous theory that they were played by soldiers on Hadrian’s Wall.

To hear the pipes played at their best, check out the music of Kathryn Tickell, an acclaimed local musician: http://www.kathryntickell.com/

A grand panorama of Newcastle

by hermesus

This is a place hidden from the standard, tourist routs in Newcastle. It is situated in a very quiet neighbourhood. Just on top of the hill on the Gateshead side of the river Tyne. From this spot you can enjoy the whole Newcastle panorama. I don't know of any similar place around. If you want to reach this place you have to get off at the Gateshead metro station and go uphill and to your right. Cross the busy street and take the first turn right - there it is. You'll recognise it by a set of gates and a fairly large and unusual wind cock.

It is worth paying a visit to...

by simonbuckle3

It is worth paying a visit to lindisfarne or holy island as it is also known their you can see the old monastry and sample the lindisfarne mead that is made on the island,It is of great historical and religious interest often missed as it is further north but not difficult to get to.
