Newcastle and Gateshead combine to create a compact visitor destination connected by the River Tyne and our stunning seven bridges, making both locations easy and interesting to explore. Once you’ve arrived all you’ll really need is a good pair of shoes to explore the sights. Easily accessible public transport including the Quaylink bus and Tyne and Wear Metro can get you between venues, or why not hire a bike to zip around the Exhibition?
