10 September 2015

running out of time on a city trip to Newcastle!

If you don’t know much about Newcastle you wouldn’t expect to have the best time there. But trust me! There is enough to see and to do. I’ve been in Newcastle twice so with this blog I give you some inspiration for things to do in Newcastle.

Shopping >> to do in Newcastle >>

In The Netherlands I never go to the Primark, but when I’m abroad I always just need to walk inside. I found the best eye catchers there which seemed expensive or from a designer brand. Nice! In Newcastle you can find the Primark in the main street like many other shops so take some time to go on a shopping spree.

High Bridge Street >> to do in Newcastle >>

A street you shouldn’t miss is High Bridge Street. Small boutiques like vintage to gentlemen and nice bars. The small street seems idyllic.. with cobblestones and authentic fronts!
