My City: Newcastle (in Miniature)

I think I’m qualified to call Newcastle my city now: having spent five years of my life here (with no plan to move), got a degree, a job, a husband (a mum, sisters and became an aunt for the first time!), a home, a Lord and Saviour – I can definitely call Newcastle my city! 256 more words



Absolutely loved my time here at the MalMaison Hotel on the Quayside in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne! Highly recommended.

Fantastic service, great location and the room was immaculate. The Quayside really is so beautiful, it reminded me of Sydney’s Harbour Bridge a little and made me emotional!

Whilst in the centre of Newcastle this weekend I visited the Quayside area to see the newly returned Kittiwakes. All I can say is “wow!”. The Kittiwakes which breed on the Tyne bridge and atop a number of other buildings along the river Tyne are the most inland breeding colony in the world. 319 more words
