If you have your own transport Beamish open air museum (near Gateshead) is very interesting, there old trams running to the "village" which is comprised of old building that have been taken from other parts of the country and rebuilt and restored theter is also an open cast coal mine.

Yes i have looked at the website for Beamish, do you think it is value for money at £13 per adult and £6 per child, the day after we go back to Liverpool they go onto winter price at £6 per adult.

Are you driving? In that case High Force waterfall might be interesting. Great countryside. Check pages on Barnard Castle for more info. I've not seen the falls myself, just been to the town and seen the old Ricardian castle. Otherwise, I'm curious of Beamish myself...

About Beamish, it's great, but I think a 2 year old is a bit young for here. The place is enormous and even though they do have lots of quaint means of transportation, you still have to do a lot of walking, and it is very hilly in places. Save this one for when your child is older. £13 per adult does seem steep, but the place includes a coal mine, village with many shops and demonstrations of life in earlier times, schoolhouse, farm, and railroad. A lot of activities stop during the off season when the winter rates are in effect. Hope this helps. If you live within a few hours' drive of Beamish you can get an annual pass and visit an unlimited number of times for a very reasonable fee.

If the weather is OK, you could go into Newcastle and visit the Quayside. On a Sunday morning there is a market ( a bit tacky ), but within a short walking distance along the Quayside is The Milleneum Bridge ,The Sage and Baltic Buildings -see a few photos on my pages to get a flavour.

Also on the way up to Newcastle on the A1 you could stop and see The Angel of the North Statue

Hope you enjoy your visit
Best wishes

I work in Durham and it is a beautiful city just to stroll around - a walk combining the river, taking in the Cathedral along the way, and then around the city itself, visiting the Cathedral and area from a different vantage point. It has one of the oldest and most successful universities in the UK and consequently is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the north, with people from many many countries living here, permanently as well as temporarily. I can also recommend Barnard Castle - a beatiful historic town, as well as Richmond in North Yorkshire. I enjoy being in the nature and spend many Sundays in these areas. If you're into commercial entertainment you might visit the Metro Centre(not my taste personally), which will offer you hundrends of shops, restaurants, bars, and places of indoor entertainment. This is located only a few miles from Durham, in Gateshead. Have a good weekend. Lynne

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Prudhoe Castle

by stevezero

Begun between 1100 and 1120 to defend a strategic crossing of the River Tyne against Scottish invaders, Prudhoe Castle has been continuously occupied for over nine centuries. After two sieges during the 1170s - the Scots attackers reportedly declaring 'as long as Prudhoe stands, we shall never have peace' - the mighty stone keep and a great hall were added, followed in about 1300 by two strong towers. Passing from its original Umfraville owners to the powerful Percies in 1398, it was again updated with a fashionable new great hall.
Even after its last military action against the Scots in 1640, Prudhoe's importance as the centre of a great landed estate continued. Early in the 19th century the Percies restored it, building a fine new manor house within its walls. All these developments are now vividly interpreted in a new family-friendly exhibition including site finds, helping visitors to explore and understand the extensive remains of this formidable and long-lived fortress.

Newcastle And Its Bridges

by steventilly

Newcastle is as famous for its bridges as it is for Brown Ale. There are now 7 of them across the Tyne at Newcastle. Starting furthest downstream these are.
The Millennium Bridge
The Tyne (King Gerorge V) Bridge
The Swing Bridge
The High Level Bridge
The Metro (QEII) Bridge
The Railway (King Edward) Bridge
The Redheugh Bridge
The Swing Bridge is the only vehicle crossing at the level of the Quayside, and until the opening of the new Millennium Bridge it is the only crossing of any sort at this level.

Geordie - a dialect of...

by joecooper

Geordie - a dialect of English, apparently! If you though Cockney was hard to understand, try working out what a Geordie is saying, espcially after 5 pints a broon! Common terms used by even the best-spoken Geordies are 'Way-ay' (OK), 'Ha-way' (Go on), 'Like' (Follows every sentence). You may need some help, so use this links: English-Geordie Translator and Geordie Dictionary

The old city walls

by toontraveller

Once upon a time the "New Castle" built for William the conqueror's brother was surrounded by city walls. For some reason the victorians destroyed most of these and little remains of them. There were a number of gates to the city, 3 of which remain. The most impressive of these is the Black Gate next to Newcastle Keep.

You can walk from here on a Sunday morning to the keep about 50 yards away, down the ancient "Dog Leap Steps" to the Quayside. Here you can walk past Newcastle's 6 world famous bridges including the Tyne Bridge of which the Sydney harbour bridge was moddled on, The swing bridge built by Lord Armstrong on the site of the original Roman bridge, the High Level Bridge built by Robert Stephenson which was the worlds first road and rail bridge and now the award winning Gateshead millenium bridge. There are many modern and historical buildings here and a great big Tat (cheap things you really dont need) market.
