Let City Sightseeing introduce you to Newcastle upon Tyne‘s rich history as you take a bus tour of the city. Newcastle’s Town Walls are protected by their Scheduled Ancient Monument classification. This medieval defensive wall was built during the 13th and 14th centuries to help protect the town from attack. Large amounts of the wall were demolished during the 18th and 19th centuries but some still remains, particularly on the western side of the city. The Great North Museum incorporates collections from the Hancock Museum and Newcastle University’s Museum of Antiquities, the Shefton Museum and the Hatton Gallery. See major displays showing the wonder of the animal kingdom, Ancient Egyptian mummies and a life-size T-Rex skeleton. Explore interactive exhibitions incorporating touch screen technology and an interactive model of Hadrian’s Wall. Admire the artworks in the Laing Art Gallery, home to an impressive collection of art and sculpture. The exhibition programme is renowned for bringing the biggest names in historic, modern and contemporary art to the North East. Baltic Square is home to The Centre for Contemporary Art where you will also find Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the world’s first and only tilting bridge! The bridge not only serves a practical purpose as the River Tyne’s only foot and cycle bridge, but its elegance and fine engineering make it one of the city’s main attractions. The river boasts seven bridges in all.
See the latest blockbuster, spend time in the casino or kick back and relax in one of a wide range of restaurants, cafes, pubs and bars and at the city’s entertainment complex, The Gate.
