Why summer 2021 is the perfect time to visit Newcastle

(Ad) It’s the year of staycations and local tourism has never been more important or vibrant.

This summer has already seen lots of gorgeous weather and the North East is one of the best places in the UK to enjoy it! But how? Well, thanks to NE1, Newcastle city centre is absolutely buzzing with beautiful street art and outdoor fun for people of all ages.

As part of their #NE1SummerintheCity campaign, they’ve gone all out with a variety of installations and events. Between now and early September you can find gorgeous flower displays above shop windows, catch an outdoor movie at their Screen on the Green cinema, or explore some beautiful artwork on the Quayside. The current installations by the Tyne include 3D art by artist Joe Hill, a dichroic seating installation which feels like sitting in rainbows, and a wave field of seesaws!

They also have a selection of events to choose from, such as walking tours of the city (including one where you get to walk up Grey’s Monument), Teddy Bear Picnics on the Quayside and Mela in the City. For all of these and more I will post the link to their website at the bottom of this article.

Of course as well as these special summer editions to the city, Newcastle is still renowned for it’s excellent shopping, entertainment and the amazing food and drink options we have to offer.

One of things that makes Newcastle city centre so great is that it houses a spectacular collection of well known brands and smaller independent businesses. You can visit Northumberland Street and Eldon Square for many of your high street names, or the Grainger Market and Quayside Market for loads of artisan goods.

Not to mention, the host of fantastic theatres, clubs and museums across town. Fancy a comedy night? Great, see you at The Stand! Dinner and a play? No problem – the Theatre Royal it is! Or a piece of local history? Newcastle Castle is just waiting to welcome you.

Stay safe, and we can’t wait to see you this summer!
