Description |


Walking through cities is a hidden pleasure. Walking through Newcastle is no different. The added frissance of mystery is that you can follow the path of the Hadrian's Wall Path. 


Starting by the museum at Wallsend, the pathway forwards forces you onto a magical mystery tour past industrial heritage, along the waterfront, under bridges and on. 


It forces you to see the city of Newcastle from the roots up. Through ages. Watch as the architecture changes, pick out the buildings from afar and stare upwards in open mouth awe as you pass under those bridges for which Newcastle is perhaps best known; along the river which is best known of all - the river Tyne.
