Hi everyone, been a while.
So I turned 21 and spent my birthday in the sunny Newcastle as it is a city I longed to visit and explore. We went from Edinburgh to Newcastle via train, me, my boyfriend and my best friend.. we had the best little holiday getting lots of ‘perfect pics’ and drunk of course.
It was funny actually, the one thing I used to love on TV was Geordie Shore and every time you mention it to a Geordie Uber driver they would go nuts telling us that’s not the only thing that they have going for them! Everyone was super friendly though and we only really needed a taxi to visit the Angel of the North as our hotel was right on the Diamond Strip.
When we first arrived, we headed to our hotel to get unpacked and changed, we then headed out to The Gate for some food in Nando’s and then some drinks in Wetherspoons, can never go wrong there! And our first night we visited The Alchemist as previously we had went to one in Liverpool and loved it and my friend hadn’t been before so we had to enlighten her to the fun, smokey cocktails.
The next day was my birthday, so we got up and had breakfast then went back to bed for a bit of a lie in, not going to lie I kinda needed it after the cocktails the night before.. oops! We then headed out to see all the touristy bits like the Tyne Bridge, the Angel of the North, Newcastle football stadium.. insert photo spam now, haha..
The night of my birthday, we went out on the Diamond strip, it was really busy as well considering my birthday was a Thursday! We went to Floritas, House of Smith, Bijoux and Flares, my favourite pub was definitely between Florita’s and Flares as they both had good energy and cocktails of course, duh!
Overall, we had such a good trip and I really enjoyed the couple of nights away for my birthday, I would recommend visiting Newcastle to anyone that hasn’t as everyone is so friendly and welcoming, it felt like we hadn’t left Scotland in a sense.
What’s your favourite city? Where do you think I should visit next? City break or beach holiday?
Lots of Love,
