  Quayside of Newcastle
by sandysmith

Newcastle was narrowly pipped at the post by liverpool for capital of Culture 2008 but the good news is that like Liverpool and Salford areas the docks have been rejuvenated and a walk here gives wonderful views of all those bridges in Newcastle - a classic city landscape. With the conversion of an old mill into the art Baltic centre and other developments going on there is much to see - plus all linked ny the Gateshead Millenium Bridge - a masterpiece of engineering. Great shopping by day in "Toon Town" and lively nightlife down by the quayside area too.
