Managed to grab a weekend in Newcastle and stayed on the quayside so not too far from the water. Never far from work though, should have left the phones at home. Quayside has been developed so much over the last few years.
Around the quayside there is a great deal to see and do, Sage, Tate and the historic swing bridge and beyond it looking beyond the millennium eye which lifts to let the ships through. And then there is the City itself which remains young and vibrant.
