2. Outdoor Family Fun
It’s always hard to keep little ones entertained and the pressure is on to keep them happy when you’re on a family break. Luckily, Newcastle has a little of everything to keep them entertained, from treasure hunts in the city to horse riding in Stepney Stables. If they’re old enough, take them for an adventurous day paintballing or laser tag in ‘No Limits’. You could also enjoy a mini city farm, a railway discovery centre, mini golf, soft play, playgrounds and so much more. Just make sure your accommodation is family-friendly so everyone comes home happy, like our serviced apartments in Newcastle.
3. Tours in Newcastle City
A tour bus is a great way to explore an unfamiliar area and learn more about the history of the town, deciding where you should hop on and hop off. Technically it’s not ‘outdoors’ but most tour buses in the city have open-top upper decks so you’ll get plenty of fresh air! Buses start at Central Station in Newcastle and take a circular route bringing you past some of the finest sights around the city, including the Discovery Museum, St James’ Park, Great North Museum, Ouseburn, Quayside, Millennium Bridge, Tyne Bridge, Baltic, Sage Gateshead, Grey’s Monument, Grey Street and Newcastle Cathedral. Ask our friendly staff for advice if you’re unsure where to hop on.
4. Tynemouth Beaches
For a busy, bustling city, you’d be surprised to know that one of the UK’s finest beaches is just six miles east of the city centre and are easily reachable by car or public transport. If you’re craving the sea, get your salty fix on Tynemouth beaches where you can enjoy the wide sandy stretches and crashing waves. You can arrange white water rafting or surfing, or just lie back and enjoy a bit of sunshine – if you’re lucky! Some of the British Surfing Nationals are held on the surf and if you’re lucky you might see some previous champions catching a few waves in their off time. Warm up after your paddle with a hot chocolate in one of the many beachside cafes.
5. Walking and Hiking in Newcastle
We Geordies are lucky to live in such a beautiful region packed with scenic spots that we can explore any time. If high energy adventures aren’t for you, why not take yourself out and enjoy a scenic walk or hike in Newcastle. You don’t even have to leave the city to enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the most beautiful parts of the Toon, Jesmond Dene. Keep following the river you’ll end up in Ouseburn Valley where you can enjoy a well-deserved drink and a bite to eat before heading home. If you’re lucky enough to have a car with you, head out to Northumberlandia, home to the Lady of the North. Part community park and part massive public art installation, the area is ideal for exploration, picnics and family fun days out.
