I went to Newcastle for work for a day and had an hour and a bit before getting my train to see stuff. I asked on facebook and Instagram what I should do, and the consensus was the Baltic, so I walked down to the Quayside and just managed to go up to the viewing platforms before it closed. I wasn’t much impressed with the city as it seemed to be 99% chain shops and restaurants (although I did have an excellent coffee from pink lane coffee). I wonder where all the students/hipsters are hiding? It’s a big city with two universities there must be indie shops and cafes somewhere!
Anyway, some snaps from my wander.
