Venues along this route epitomise the innovative spirit of the North.
Your ideal starting point is the Great North Museum – one of the three dedicated Exhibition hubs. Once you’ve explored the bold Which Way North exhibition and come face to face with the ground-breaking innovations of the North, it’s time to see some of the places where the magic happens.
From medical breakthroughs at Newcastle University and the Centre for Life to solutions of tomorrow’s Smart Cities at Science Central, you’ll see where boundaries are broken and problems are solved. Visit the spots where history was made, including Stephenson’s Quarter, where the Rocket was designed and built, and the Mining Institute, witness to many engineering world firsts. You can even marvel at Rocket itself on a visit to Discovery Museum.
