Hit the streets of Newcastle

Tips from the team at Stagecoach to help you enjoy a week in Newcastle, exploring by Megarider bus pass…

Monday: visit the Centre for Life to explore the science village for an educational day out.

Tuesday: head to the Grainger Market situated in the heart of Newcastle.

Wednesday: split your week up by taking a trip to the Theatre Royal and immerse yourself in some of the greatest produced shows in the country. Cilla, The Whitney Houston Show, Cinderella and The Kite Runner are all on the line-up and, being one of the most beautiful theatres in the country, it’s well worth a visit.

Thursday: if you’re looking for a more adrenaline pumping day out, why not try one of the Escape Rooms in Newcastle? Whether you attend the Witchcraft & Wizardry or The Cabin themed room, grab a group of friends and help save your team by looking for clues that will enable your break-out.

Friday: looking to learn more about the city? Head down to the Victoria Tunnel in Ouseburn, just along from the Newcastle Quayside. The tunnel is a 19th century wagonway that ran right under the city towards the Town Moor. In 1939, it was converted to an air-raid shelter to protect people from the WW2 bombings.

Saturday: are you a lover of movies? Take a trip to the independent Tyneside Cinema to watch a range of films (including box office hits, those from the past, and indie films that you might not see elsewhere). Originally a News Theatre in 1937, you can even take a guided tour which features a newsreel display and learn more about the UK’s only purpose-built newsreel theatre. If you’re just after for food and drinks, the Tyneside Bar Café has a brunch and evening menu serving food that is fresh to order. If you’re looking for something stronger, Vicolo, a coffee and cocktail bar, is a great place to stop.

Sunday: it would be going against all Geordie traditions if you didn’t attend the Quayside Market in Newcastle on a Sunday. Open from 9am to 4pm, you will have a chance to explore dozens of market stalls that run along the Quayside up to the Millennium Bridge.
