Consisting of several boroughs there are many places to stay and explore in your caravan or motorhome in Tyne and Wear.
Gateshead, lies on the southern bank of the River Tyne opposite Newcastle upon Tyne, and offers caravanners the chance to explore the Beamish Museum, or the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, or even view the Angel of the North from the windows of the caravan.
Newcastle City Centre and Gateshead town centre and are joined by seven different bridges across the Tyne, including the landmark Gateshead Millennium Bridge so it is very easy to travel between the two. Pop to Newcastle upon Tyne to cast your eyes on the Georgian Grainger Town, or dance the night away as Newcastle upon Tyne's nightlife has been named as Great Britain's number one tourist attraction by The Rough Guide to Britain.
Newcastle is known for some of its main icons such as Newcastle Brown Ale, a leading brand of beer, Newcastle United F.C., a Premier League team, and the above mentioned Tyne Bridge. It has also played host to the world's most popular half marathon, the Great North Run, since it began in 1981. Mingle with the local Geordies in the UK’s nosiest city over a spot a lunch.
If that doesn’t catch your fancy instead visit the county’s other boroughs North Tyneside (Segedunum Roman fort, The Stephenson Railway Museum in New York, named after George Stephenson and Robert Stephenson who both came from Tyneside and Tynemouth Castle and Priory), South Tyneside (The Customs House Arts Centre, Bede's World, the Tyne Pedestrian Tunnel, and South Shields Sailing Club, ) or Sunderland(The statue of the walrus from Lewis Carroll’s The Walrus and the Carpenter, Hylton Castle, Backhouse Park, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art and Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens) and see what they have to offer. Any of these suggestions would make for a great adventure out in your touring caravan.
