Discover Newcastle with two fabulous discovery walks around this famous city.

Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is England's most northern city: more than twice as far from London as it is from Edinburgh. Dating back to Roman times there are still remains of its castle, miles of town walls, a well preserved friary, a Guildhall and two beautiful cathedrals. From more modern times there's an impressive indoor market, a thriving Chinatown, countless shops and eateries, and the Tyne bridges - icons of Tyneside's industrial pride.

Our two unique walks follow on from each other so can be enjoyed separately, or joined together to form one longer walk, depending upon how long you have, and how many of Newcastle's fantastic distractions tempt you! Be entertained and challenged, answer clues and match pictures, whilst reading tales about this brilliant city. Most of all: have fun and stay curious...
