    Newcastle Castle : The Gateway to Old Newcastle

    Hard to believe that for my 34 years on this planet I’ve never visited Newcastle Castle.  Must have walked or passed it on the Metro, heading into town hundred of times. Located high above the Quayside sandwiched between the High Level Bridge and main Railway line going into Central Station. The Newcastle Castle is very hard to miss! […]

    Turtle Bay Newcastle is located next to the Gate, as part of the Old Coop Building redevelopment. We’ve walked past here several times and last year popped in for some cocktails.

    Cal’s Own, Jesmond

    In a previous incarnation, we’d been to Cal’s Own, but so far we’d not tried Cal’s Own, Jesmond. When in Heaton it was simply a great pizza place. Simple pizzas and a bring your own booze setup. I remember this for three reasons. Firstly it was Abigail’s Birthday and we had two giant pizzas, served to […]

Maps, timetables and tickets in hand we were all set to get our inner science geek on! It had been over […]
