Newcastle city love

This is quite possibly one of the best weeks I’ve ever had. A week without work and a week with the boy and the city I love. 

If you’ve never visited Newcastle upon Tyne in North East England, I truly believe you’re missing out. Walking along the Quayside is pain I’m willing to deal with for this view.

A night on the town might be out, but sitting at the bar drinking cocktails is still very much in. Taxi from one place to the next avoids the walk, and I truly believe I’ve developed a skill to find a chair in even the busiest bar.

Being a tourist in the city you live is a must-do. I told you about Beamish earlier in the week, which remains my top tip for those not too good with the walking.

And any city with a beach is on to a winner in my opinion.

Di Meo’s Deleval Ices is honestly the most perfect restaurant idea. Pizza and ice cream. That’s it. WONDERFUL.

Tea and cake is the perfect way to break up the day when the walking gets a bit much.

If you’re in the north east of England and have never been to Tynemouth market, I highly recommend it. It’s not new to me, I’m there far too often, but I love it!

St Mary’s lighthouse is a lovely tourist spot. Clearly I had no hope of climbing up it, but you can park right next to it – and there’s a van in the car park selling hot doughnuts. Just saying.

I’m not going to lie, it’s been an exhausting week. But so totally worth it. Newcastle upon Tyne, you are without a doubt my favourite of all the cities.
