What to See, city information, where to stay and more


The region boasts a wealth of attractions from medieval castles, to modern cities and to spectacular landscapes, beaches and national parks.

In Newcastle-upon-Tyne get to cheer Newcastle FC in action for example after a day of sight-seeing. The criss-cross illuminated footbridges connecting the rejuvenated quaysides that dot Newcastle are likely to take your breath away. History lovers will have a field day here are they tour local museums and galleries.

If you are operating on a tight budget, make your way to the North York Moors where you can keep fit by cycling along numerous footpaths that cut across heather coated ridges. You may also follow dinosaur footprints, and find yourself a Jurassic Park!

Walking through the moors, or surfing in the North Sea can be quite exhilarating but also dangerous. Be sure to travel in groups, or have a guide, so that you can easily watch each other’s back. North East England is shrouded in secrecy, and this is its real beauty. Few people know what the region has to offer, and you would want to find out for yourself.
