To visit the North East of England is to find a trillion hidden 'Gems', from the banks of the River Tyne, walk over the Gateshead and Newcastle Millenium Bridge, view the iconic Tyne Bridges, delight at the Art Features and Music venues all within viewing distance.

For those looking for a trip down memory lane, you can't beat a visit to Beamish Open Air Museum, nostalgia is the word..Take the family on a Tram Ride, call in and view the Cottages and check out the veg gardens.
Then take a walk down the main street...visit the Dentist Surgery and view the old fashioned equipment...aahh!! plus lots lots more...just remember to take your camera...

One place to visit in the North East, is 'Bedes World' situated next to the historic Saint Pauls Chuch in Jarrow Tyne and Wear. during your visit you will view many displays and historic information relating to the 'Life and Times' of the Venerable Saint Bede.

Take time to visit the website for update on new exhibitions / talks / and other special events planned for the months ahead.

Another site that you may find will give extra details of Saint Pauls Church

Visiting the North East then take a Ferry Boat trip from South Shields to the Harbour mouth , great views along the banks of the Tyne.
Maybe call in at the Customs House and take time out to view the latest Exhibition, see a live show or the latest film.
Take a walk along the coastline call in at the Little Haven Hotel for coffee just remember to have your camera handy for those coastal photos.

Or then again get a daily travel pass and hop on the Metro system and get over to Tynemouth Station on a weekend, they host a Book and Crafts Fair etc, every weekend, great for that extra special bargain.

Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside hosts the Sage music venue and Baltic Art complex, plus lots of great places to relax over a meal and view the iconic Newcastle Bridges .
