Really good atmosphere in Hadrian's Tipi and around Hadrian's Christmas markets area. Super cosy fire pits. Very good music and plenty staff so bar service was tiptop. All ages welcome. Fun Snow globe too.

Northumberland Street is Newcastle's main shopping street! Every single high street chain is here, either directly on it or in the Intu Eldon Square shopping centre (or both). Obviously during the day, and especially if it's the weekend, it will be super extra busy!!!
