END OF 2006 IN NEWCASTLE

by MARCUSMARCUS

SOMEBODY CAN REPLY TO ME? IS A GOOD IDEA TO GO TO NEWCASTLE FOR THE 31/12/2006?

RE: END OF 2006 IN NEWCASTLE

by Maxus

Yes its a good idea, maybe the best place to be in the North of England.

Newcastle is famous for its nightlife, New Years Eve will be buzzing, the pubs and clubs will be packed but there are plenty of them.

I am sure there will be a Geordie along soon with more detailed advice, in the meantime look here;

by simonbuckle3

One of the most important things is the Angel of the North which welcomes visitors as they approach Gateshead along the A1. my favorite thing about the North-East is the people ,most of them are very friendly and helpfull to visitors and tourists alike.

The girls!

by sabsi

Can you imagine my face when I saw my first typical Newcastle girl? HAHAHA I was so shocked.

I was told that Newcastle is famous for its girls - they are dressed to kill, even if just going for a meal at a Chinese Buffet Place (see picture) or walking down the streets.

I can't believe how many half naked girls I've seen here! Problem was that they looked "good" when you saw their backs but as soon as they turned around I thought I was in a horror film sometimes ;)

HAHAHA A very funny feature of Newcastle!

Heaven will be missing this Angel

by wandabendik

The Angel of the North stands at the entrance to Tyneside, it is a main attraction to visitors
which has a warm, appealing colour. it's arms stretched out to welcome people into tyneside.

It is of a special weather resistant steel which contains copper. The surface oxidises to form a patina, which mellows with age to a rich red brown colour.

It stands 20 metres high and its wings span are 54metres wide.

Tynemouth Priory

by toonsarah

Part castle, part religious site, Tynemouth Priory dominates the northern entrance to the River Tyne and makes a striking back-drop to Tynemouth’s beaches and small sailing harbour, the Haven. The first known building here was a 7th-century Anglian monastery, the burial place of Oswin, sainted King of Northumbria. It was destroyed by Danish raiders in the 9th century and a Benedictine priory re-founded on the site in the late 11th century. The east end of its priory church, built a hundred years later in 1200, still stands, and is the most striking sight among this group of structures (photo 2). Its graceful arches will make you wonder how lovely the rest of the church might have been. Near it is a small and very well-preserved chapel, the Oratory of St Mary, with a rose window and an ornately sculpted roof vault. This was built in the middle of the 15th century and is also known as the Percy Chapel as it was used as a resting-place for the souls of the powerful Percy family, Earls of Northumberland.

At one time the religious buildings would have been completely surrounded by a fortified wall, which circled the headland, making this one of the largest fortified areas in England, and an important defence against the Scots. Parts of these fortifications remain (on the left in this photo), although those on the north and east sides have long since tumbled into the sea, and most of the south wall was demolished. These fortifications were probably begun by Edward I in 1296, and they were strengthened and updated in the 15th century. In 1539 the priory's 19 monks surrendered Tynemouth to Henry VIII and he immediately adopted it as a royal castle, dismantling the monastic buildings but thankfully keeping the church. This remained in use as the town’s parish church until 1668 when a new one was built nearby. In more recent times the fortress headland has continued to play its centuries-old part in coastal defence, both against Napoleon and during the two World Wars. The magazine of its gun battery (photo 3) has been restored and can be visited at weekends.

The more modern buildings on the site belong to the Coastguard.

The site is now managed by English Heritage and can be visited daily during the summer (1st April – 30th September) and in school holidays, and on Mon, Thu, Fri, Sat, & Sun during the rest of the year (apart from 24th- 26th December and 1st January). Admission is £4.20 for adults, £2.10 for children and £3.60 concessions, or you can get a family ticket for £10.50.

Directions:From Tynemouth metro station walk along the main shopping street (Front Street) to its far end and you will see the Priory almost in front of you. If driving, there is parking in Front Street.
