ROUGH GUIDES' NUMBER ONE CITY TO VISIT 2018
This could be because Newcastle, along with its neighbouring town- Gateshead, will be hosting the ‘Great Exhibition of the North’ during the summer of 2018. Set to be the largest event happening in England in 2018, this amazing exhibition will showcase the art & culture, great design and innovation found in the North, attracting a global audience of over 3 million. WOW!
Starting on the 22nd of June 2018, this event will be running for 2 months and it’s completely free. Three trails across Newcastle and Gateshead will connect, using the city as its stage to tell a story about life in the North in a creative and powerful way.
The three connecting trails are:
- The Get North Art Trail
- Get North Design Trail
- Get North Innovation Trail
Newcastle also has a booming restaurant scene, whether you’re looking for the perfect runny eggs at brunch or a taste of the finer things at the Michelin Star ‘House of Tides’ restaurant, there’s something for all taste buds. Check out some of the options the staff at Express Newcastle suggest here.
