Towering above the ground at 175 feet is the iconic artwork, the Angel of the North. Visited by over 150,000 visitors a year, it is truly breath taking with a wingspan of over 65 feet. The green spaces and parks around the artwork offer prime picnic spots.
The Discovery Museum on the south side of Westgate road in Blandford Square is a must-see on your trip. Packed with interactive experiences, one of the highlights is the 100ft long Turbinia – the world’s first steam turbine powered ship.
Or maybe you fancy visiting the Life Science Centre on Westmorland Road. Have a go on the 3D simulator ride, enjoy the ‘Big Brain’ sound and light show or take part in the ‘Cell Wars’, game where you have to help zap as much bacteria as you can.
Eldon Square Shopping Centre and Northumberland Street are the main shopping areas; or make your way to nearby Gateshead for one of the largest indoor shopping centres in Europe.
The city’s nightlife is legendary and when evening falls, you’ll have a huge selection of bars, clubs, restaurants and pubs to choose from.
