Things to do around Tyne And Wear

Tyne and Wear, situated on England's northeast coast, offers a mix of urban attractions, historical landmarks, and natural beauty. Whether you're a local or a visitor, here are some fantastic activities for a memorable day out in Tyne and Wear:

1. Victoria Tunnel & Quayside, Newcastle:
- Victoria Tunnel, running underneath Newcastle, is a well-preserved 19th-century wagonway. Originally used to transport coal, it later served as an air-raid shelter during World War II. Guided tours take visitors underground, where they experience the darkness and learn about life during wartime. Above ground, explore Quayside, a cultural hub along the waterfront. Don't miss the iconic Gateshead Millennium Bridge, famous for its tilt.

2. Newcastle Castle & Grainger Market, Newcastle:
- Visit medieval Newcastle Castle, built on the site of the ancient fortress that gave the city its name. Explore restored rooms and learn about its history. Nearby, Grainger Market offers a vibrant shopping experience with independent stalls and eateries.

3. Angel of the North, Gateshead:
