Photographic celebration of historic places that embody and inspire Northern spirit will feature in a new exhibition at Bessie Surtees House.

Historic England has commissioned a new photography project that celebrates Northerness – highlighting places that have helped inspire and shape Northern identity. The photographs will be used to provide a lively and engaging story of the North, a story that could only happen here. The images will be available online and will feature in a new exhibition hosted at Bessie Surtees House, on the Newcastle Quayside. Bessie Surtees House will remain open to the public until 6pm on the evening of the Great Exhibition launch to celebrate and join in the festivities taking place on the Quayside
