My Favourite Places in Newcastle

I was recently asked by Travelodge to share my favourite place in Newcastle, it sounded Really easy, we have places we visit over and over again so we must have a favourite right?

Not quite! We couldn't decide on one so here are our top five Newcastle favourites from Monkeyfeet HQ 

Tyne Theatre and Opera House
A beautiful traditional Theatre right next to Newcastle's China Town. The Tyne are host to a huge range of shows from family favourites like cat in the hat, ballet, opera to one person shows from big names like Sarah Millican and Gino D'acampo. We love a visit here so the kids have this as one of their top days out.

I make no secret that Northern Stage is one of my favourite theatres to visit, a quite modern building they offer productions created totally in house as well as touring productions from around the country. Our favourites here are their family Christmas shows which we visit every year.This years ofeerigs of Up and Out Christmas Sprout and Wizard of Oz are sure to be amazing.

A guaranteed fun day out learning all there is about life, with lots of exhibits and plenty of hands on experiences and experiments this is always a first choice for a boredom buster! The Centre houses a soft play and toddler zone, a cafe, gift shop and various exhibitions throughout the year. With loads of friendly knowledgeable staff on hand to answer questions or help out with the experiments.

I discovered this cafe just recently when I found myself with an hour to kill in the Ouseburn  Valley in Newcastle. The farm houses a small range of animals and a beautiful allotment full of home grown produce and the cafe make almost everything themselves and are priced surprisingly low. two giant cups of tea a savoury pastry and a slice of delicious cake came in under £5! The cafe provide training for adults with additional needs as well as a great resource for local families to learn about farming and growing. I would highly recommend a visit to while away an afternoon.

The Millenium Bridge
It may sound strange as its not a place to eat or even do any activities but we love a stroll along the quayside across the Millenium Bridge, no matter how many times the kids see the 'eye blink' they, and me i will admit, are still amazed. Its a beautiful sight at night  too and an amazing spot for people watching

What are your favourite places to visit in Newcastle? Id love to hear about them
