The unified tourist destination of Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead is spread across the spectacular riverscape of the county of Tyne and Wear in England, creating a place that is as culturally diverse and vibrant as it is beautiful. Many attractions on both sides of the place await travelers who come here, from centuries-old buildings to a lively modern nightlife.
One of the best ways to enjoy the city in 2015 is to jump on a hop on hop off bus tour, on which you will board an open top double decker bus to visit the top sights of Newcastle Gateshead at your own pace. Here you’ll get to discover England's most popular science village, Center for Life, and experience its planetarium - the largest in the North! - motion ride and themed shows. Explore the craft shops at the Blackfriars Monastery, a restored 13th century complex which also includes a restaurant where you can enjoy fine dining, and an exhibition portraying the history of the Blackfriars. See the beautiful architecture of old Britain and admire the stained glass windows and the five pipe organs of St. Mary's Cathedral, designed in 1844 by the same architect who designed the Houses of Parliament. Visit the Castle Keep, which has been alternately used as a fortification and as a prison, and the majestic gatehouse known as the Black Gate; both were built in the 12th century by Henry II on the site of the fortress from which Newcastle derived its name. Explore these and other landmarks at 17 stops on a tour bus loop, admiring them from atop your tour bus and listening to guided commentary, or leaving your seat to explore each landmark further. It’s all up to you.
