Self-catering Flat in Newcastle

by buckrodgers

Hi,

I was just if I, as a non-student, am allowed to stay in the self-catering flat e.g Charlotte House for a few weeks?

They seem very affordable.

It depends on the university. Some do let out rooms to the general public, usually during the summer vacation (although York uni has rooms available throughout the year). It's probably best to google for their website and get more info from there.

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Blackfriars

by steventilly

Just off Stowell Street at the opposite end to Rosie's is Monk Street and here you will find Blackfriars Priory - it's easily and often overlooked. It dates from the 13th century and after the disollution in 1539 it was used by various town guilds as their meeting rooms and also as almshouses. Some of the almsfolk remained until as recently as 1930. The Priory was restored in the 1980's and these days it provides a unique insight into the past and provides an oasis of tranquility in a busy city centre.

It's open 9 til 5 Monday to saturday and admission is free. There's a first calss cafe/bar here too.

The Baltic

by steventilly

The Baltic Flour Mill was owned by the British milling giants RHM and was closed in 1982. Gateshead council have comissioned for the building to be converted into a centre for visual arts - it will be the largest such venue outside of London.
And if you think THAT is big, you should see The Sage centre, almost next door!

Newcastle Brown Ale, or...

by steventilly

Newcastle Brown Ale, or 'Newkie Brown' as it's known, is one of the country's most famous beers. Launched in 1927 it scooped Gold Medals at every brewing competition in it's subsequent years, and these medals are comemorated on it's label.

Sold in 1 pint bottles, it's traditional to take a 1/2 pint glass and keep topping the glass up from the botttle as you drink, never allowing the glass to empty (so buy a new bottle before you finish your glass). The beer is not 'live' so there is no sediment in the bottle.

As part of a 'revamp' the 'Ale' has now been dropped and the label simply proclaims 'Newcastle Brown'.

In and around Newcastle the beer is also known as Dog, so don't be surprised to hear people asking for 'a bottle of dog'.

Bamburgh Castle

by Fen

Towering above the tiny village of Bamburgh on the bare, sandy coastline of Northumberland, the massive walls of this medieval fortress are one of two such places believed to be the original site of Lancelot's castle of Joyous Garde.

This is the probable site of Sir Lancelot's famous castle of Joyous Garde, where he once gave refuge to Tristan and Iseult, and where he himself retired to escape the rumours of his liaison with Arthur's Queen.

6 miles east of Belford by the B1342 from the A1Bamburgh, Northumberland.

Shopping in town

by toonsarah about Along Northumberland Street

If you’re not keen on shopping malls there’s still plenty of choice on the streets of Newcastle. The main shopping street is probably Northumberland Street, which runs between the Haymarket and Monument Metro stations. Shops along here include H&M, Marks & Spencer, W H Smith, Next, HMV and many other well-known chains. There’s also one of Newcastle’s largest department stores, Fenwick’s. The windows here are one of the highlights of a Geordie child’s Christmas as they do excellent displays with moving figures telling a traditional story.
