    In an old fashioned city, the contrast is made by a neoclassical city centre, with Grey street in evidence.

    It really differs from all the remaining city, that, I must confess, didn't please me much.

    Metrocentre

    Newcastle i thought was one great place to shop! possibly the only place i did any shopping to speak of... its cheaper than most places i visited. I went to this place called the `Metrocentre' - huge shopping mall/ area with lots of malls... Its supposed to be Europe's largest shopping and leisure centre. Most of the major department stores and labels you can think of are there and there are also theme areas, restaurants and cinemas.
    Someone told me that tourists from Scandinivia often take trips across the north sea to Newcastle just to shop!
    One important thing--- parking is free!

    Shopping: The Metro Center.

    Enormous shopping Mall housing a variety of high street giants plus smaller specialist retailers and some classy boutiques.

    The Metro Centre also has a 'Mediterrenean Village' which consists of a replica street lined with tavernas and restaurants, as well as a 'Roman Forum' which houses antique shops.

    Also within The Metro Centre is a small 'Theme park', basically there to entertain the kids, most adults would soon tire of it.

    If this wasn't enough there's a 10-pin bowling alley and a multiplex cinema, as well as a plethora of bars, cafes and restaurants.

    Around The Metro Centre is another sprawling retail park which includes a Toys R Us and an Ikea, as well as a Marriott Hotel (with themed rooms!) and a Harry Ramsdens Fish & Chip Restarant.

    Allow plenty of time when visiting The Metro Centre. And bring your plastic!

    Metro Centre

    It's a HUGE shoppingcentre with, I don't know, 100s of shops. Heaven for shoppingholics! But there's also a theme park, cinemas, bowling, laser games etc.
