Tilly Tour - Part 4

Newcastle was the last leg of our weekend Tilly Tour :-) The morning had seen us in the sunshine of the delightful university city of Durham. We arrived here for a Tapas lunch and walk around the quayside and the town sight of "Toon" town. Really enjoyed the sights here - just wish I'd brought my sunglasses and had more coffee as the resulting headache just took off the edge off the visit :-S Still lots more to see than we managed to enjoy in our afternoon here so I'm sure we will be back for another visit sometime.

Pros and Cons

    Thanks for the tips on Newcastle. I'll try to put them to good use in March.

    Great pic - Thanks. Here in "Barking Town" we have the UK's 2nd largest public artwork called "Holding Pattern" - It's 70m long x 50m wide and almost 6m high. It cost £650,000 to build and only Anthony Gormley's Angel of the North is bigger.

    I learned a lot about Newcastle from your travel page. Looks like a place I'd enjoy visiting.

    Your Baltic tip was featured just now on the VT homepage. Great photo! Newcastle is also high on my list of places to visit.

    I have just added Newcastle on my "Top 5 places I need to visit a.s.a.p". Bridges look fantastic and the docklands development looks very interesting.

    I presume he means the Angel? Or maybe St James' Park?
