Why not plan a trip to our Newcastle serviced apartments with your closest friends or partner? After all, you've earned it. Newcastle has even been named the friendliest city in the UK, so you can be assured that you will be warmly greeted! Here are a few things you can get up to during your visit to Newcastle.
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art
Shore Rd, Gateshead NE8 3BA
Unpredictable and fascinating contemporary art may be found in The BALTIC. It has even hosted the famous Turner Prize. The BALTIC looms above the south bank of the Tyne in Gateshead, and it's impossible to miss it if you're walking down to Quayside. A wide variety of local and international artists have contributed to the collection. Even if art isn't your thing, the vista from the fifth-floor observation platform is worth a visit.
The Black Gate, Castle Garth, NE1 1RQ
With its majestic Norman fortress only a short walk from Newcastle's central station, it's little wonder why the city got its name from it. Newcastle Castle is rich in fascinating history, with connections to William the Conqueror and as a location where "armies assembled, and criminals were imprisoned and executed." It's a family-friendly establishment with magnificent interior architecture and a spectacular view of the city and the Tyne River from the top.
16 Stoddart Street, NE2 1AN
The Biscuit Factory is a former Victorian warehouse that now houses the UK's biggest independent commercial art, craft, and design gallery, with over 250 artists' works on display at any given time. Paintings and prints are among the many items available, as are ceramics, textiles, photography, furniture, design-led homewares, and even jewellery. It is accessible to the public from Wednesday through Sunday, and admission is free!
St Nicholas Square, NE1 1PF
There is a magnificent and distinctive lantern tower atop this 14th-century mediaeval structure. There are also exquisite stained-glass windows and a 17th-century great hall. The cathedral, which is located immediately adjacent to Newcastle Castle, is accessible every day and admission is free.
Newcastle is known for its crazy golf, and there are three locations to pick from! Mr Mulligan's Space Golf (117 Newgate St, NE1 5RZ) features three space-themed courses suitable for families.
Lane 7 (80-90 St James' Blvd, NE1 4BN) has an adventure golf course and bowling, table tennis, and pool tables. Inside, you'll also discover a burger joint - because winning can be a lot of effort! When visiting Lane 7, children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Ghetto Golf (Walker Rd, NE6 2HL, The Clay Shed Hoult's Yard) This 18-hole crazy golf course and cocktail bar are only for those above the age of 18. Expect brilliant neon graffiti, DJs, delicious burgers, and incredible artwork everywhere. If you're searching for a great date night experience, this is it.
Life Science Centre
Times Square, NE1 4EP
The award-winning Life Science Centre, which has the largest planetarium in the North of England, is definitely one of the most fantastic indoor attractions in Newcastle.
