Weekend in Newcastle

Newcastle is infamous for its nightlife mainly due to the reality TV show, Geordie Shore. Alex and I decided to do a weekend in Newcastle to explore the city but mainly to experience the nightlife.

It’s approximately 3.5 hours by train from London so we caught an early morning train on Saturday. We had breakfast at Pink Lane Coffee and then walked around the city seeing the castle, churches and walked along the Tyne river, where you see the famous Tyne Bridge and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

For lunch, we went to Six Restaurant located on the sixth floor of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts. The restaurant was lovely and the food was very good. At lunch time, they do 2 courses for £20 or 3 courses for £25. I had the smoked salmon as a starter, the duck confit leg for the main and the soft cheesecake with rhubarb and blood orange for the dessert. It was all so delicious! The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is good too.

In the evening, we went to Route for a pre dinner wine and then headed to Sachins for an Indian dinner. We had the samosa, king prawns and black daal with naan which was nice!

We started the night at Bijoux which had good music and it was busy. After, we headed to Floritas, a Miami themed bar and then House of Smith which was next door. The last club we went to was Livello. All the bars/clubs were super fun and had a great vibe, meaning we had a good night!

The next day we went to Dala Swedish Cafe for breakfast. The river bank also has markets on Sunday so it was good to walk around. For a light lunch, we grabbed some Vietnamese at Vietcafe.
