So glad to live in a city with this kind of real proper architecture from years past. Nicely integrated with the city

Found them mentioned and not easy to find but very worthwhile to visit some remains of the city walls of this great city. Right nest to the China Town entrance and not far from St James Park football ground. A piece of history so nearly...More

If you're in the city centre area, you'll be seeing many parts of the old town walls. There are many shortcuts by stairs through the walls worth exploring. Some are quite steep but all take you back in history hundreds of years! Truly fascinating! Worth...More

Nice pub with decent menu. Food was average. Lots of different drinks to choose from. Worth a visit.

There are various outcrops around the centre of the old town walls and have information boards in various states of decay. Can't help feeling that somewhere else their status would be higher but here you need to know where to find them.

Being sited in such a very interesting historical city it's surprising that more isn't made of the surviving sections of Newcastle's walls, which pop up in all kinds of places. There are some display boards telling visitors a little of the history, but I've not...More

I pass here often and recently found the lovelty sheltered seating area beneath the walls at the end of Chinatown. The walls are not accessible to climb but still give an idea of the city's past, it stretches for a 100m or so and it...More
