Newcastle for "the end of the year"

by gerico.one

I am going to come in Newcastle 4/5 days for the end of the year 2007 with a small group of friends 4/5.

For me it's very important to find a vibrant nightlife. We are italians so we don't need a few drinks.
What about the cost to "come in " in the clubs?

Last year i have been in the south, in Bournemouth, the accomodation it wasn't cheaper but the cost of the nightlife was good, 1/2 pouds for "come in" and only in the weekend,so also the cost of the drinks was good of our local standards.

I need any useful information about Newcastle or an alternative clubbing destination. thanks

I 'm a bit old for nightlife now but here is a link to Newcastle's nightlife which is legendary in the UK. Newcastle makes Bournemouth look like toy town - I 'm not sure you will understand much of what is said there but its a great city. Here is the link - http://www.cityguide.travel-guides.com/city/490/nightlife/Europe/Newcastle.html

thanks for your reply,i understand what are you saying.
i think we'll come,it will be my first New Year's Day in UK.

do you think.. is possible to find a apartment rented daily or weekly for 5/6 day?

Re: Newcastle for "the end of the year"

Not sure but I will try and find out. Incidentally Newcastle was voted the worlds 4th most exciting city a few years ago. I think it was beaten by Rio, New York and London.

You are really kindly. I think it's the right location for an enjoyable end of the year

If you are thinking of being over for new year then you should organise in advance. I know they usually have stuff on on the boat on new years day if you can still walk at that point, thats always good, but stuff will probably be pricey. Last time I was out in Newcastle (and this was a while ago like!) it was £10 to get in sea on the quayside (not worth the money) on a normal night let alone new year. Think my fave club there is Ikon (back in the day) but if you have the money and a way to get there (not easy) Tall Trees in Yarm is about the best club in the north east depending on whats on, new year will have to be booked far in advance tho. They have a hotel there too, website is: http://www.talltrees.co.uk/

you will get a link on there as well to take you to 'club m' which is their club :) will tell you about all the events :)

Research is the best way forward :) good you've started now :)

Not to bad mouth Newcastle but my fave clubbing location in the world is Holland, we try and get there about twice a year or more to go to massive events there like Sensation black, defqon 1 and nightmare outdoor. The music is mental (pure filthy gabber) and the events are massive (about 40-50,000 people).

hope that helps, from one clubber to another ;)

Re: Newcastle for "the end of the year"

by originalribenababy

Enjoy Bulgaria :)

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Grey's Monument

by sandysmith

Grey's Monument, standing 135 feet high at the centre of Newcastle's shopping area has been a landmark meeting place for locals and visitors since its erection in 1838. It was built to commemorate the services of Charles, Earl Grey (1764-1845) who as Prime Minister was a tireless anti-slavery campaigner, steering the Great Reform Bill (1832) into law. I believe its actually possible to climb this monument via the 164 steps inside the column - must be a great view down Grey street and over Newcastle from up there.

Speak the language!

by toonsarah

Perhaps more than any other in the country, the Geordie dialect can seem impenetrable to a non-Geordie, (a Geordie being a native of Newcastle). The differences between this and standard English fall into three main group:
- words that are pronounced differently
- words that are unique to Geordie
- words that are used differently, i.e. in phrases you won't hear elsewhere in the country.
Here are some examples of each:

Many words acquire an extra syllable when spoken by a Geordie. Film becomes "fillum" and soap "so-ip"
"A"s are always short, as in axe, so the town is never pronounced, as it might be elsewhere in the country, as "Newcarrrrstle"
"ou", pronounced elsewhere as "ow", here becomes "oo" - thus "shout" sounds like "shoot"

Different words:
There are so many of these. For instance:
yem = home
gan = go
So "Ah'm gannin yem" means "I'm going home"
Canny can mean several things, including quite, nice and shrewd - you'll hear it a lot in phrases like "canny good" (quite good) or "a canny pint" (a tasty beer)
bairn = child
wor = our, or occasionally my ("wor lass" means "my wife")
clarts = mud, and "clarty" therefore = muddy
Haway = let's go, or come on
Toon = town, and by transference the town's only football team, Newcastle United
So anyone saying "Haway the Toon" or "Haway the lads" is cheering on the football players
Hinny = honey, used a term of endearment used for women and sometimes even for men

Different phrases:
Here are a couple that I like:
Up a height = in a high place (i.e. used of something up on a shelf)
She suits red = she looks good in red or as we'd say elsewhere in the country, red suits her
He takes a good photo = he's photogenic, looks good in photos (elsewhere this would mean that he's good at taking photos
She belongs London = she comes from London

Newcastle United

by Grootpiet

Football, the great passion of Newcastle... try getting anything done on a match afternoon...

Notably the home team of Alan Shearer, Newcastle's pride in their team is not misplaced.

Everywhere families are decked out in the black-and-white shirts that inspire greatness, and serious celebrations(or vice versa).

A near religion in the North, as most everywhere in the UK, Newcastle United is one of the better premiership teams to be supporting

Check out St. James park, it's a pretty impressive stadium.

A day out in Morpeth

by toonsarah

If you’d like to spend a day outside the city but don’t want to travel too far, Morpeth could be a good choice. It’s a traditional Northumberland market town about 30 minutes drive north of Newcastle, and has plenty to keep you occupied for a day, or even several. The pretty River Wansbeck runs through the town, although the severe flooding of 2007 made the river more of a threat for a while than an attraction, and some buildings still bear the scars. There is a weekly market, several interesting independent shops among the high street chains (do go into Rutherford’s to see how department stores used to be), attractive pubs and cafés, a craft centre and even a bagpipe museum.

One of the most dominant buildings in the town centre is the Clock Tower in one corner of the market place. It was built in the early 17th century from medieval stones thought to have come from a gatehouse that previously stood at the west end of Oldgate to protect the town from raiders marauding from the north. It is one of only eight secular towers in England never to have been associated with a Church, and during its time it has served a variety of functions for the town, including a gaol and a meat store. The tower contains the oldest peal of bells in Northumberland, and the curfew is still rung every evening at 8.00 PM as it has been for 300 years.

Famous past inhabitants of Morpeth include the landscape gardener “Capability” Brown. Emily Davison, the Suffragette who was killed by the King’s horse in the Derby of 1913, is buried in the churchyard of the 14th century parish church of St Mary, and Lord Nelson's deputy commander, Admiral Lord Collingwood, whose statue stands proudly above the Tyne estuary at Tynemouth, used to live in Oldgate.

Directions To get here by public transport catch a train from Newcastle Central Station or a bus from the Haymarket.
