Best Things To Do & Days Out In Newcastle upon Tyne

With so many awesome things to do in Newcastle with kids, it's a great spot for a family day out or even a day trip.

Smaller children will love the BBC Newcastle Tour. Go behind the scenes on all their favourite TV shows, see how a real newsroom works, watch a studio get set up for filming and have a go at making your own sound effects! Look out for added fun from Horrible Histories and Diddy Dick along the way!

The Centre for Life is an award-winning Science Centre full of curiosities, activities and exhibitions where children are encouraged to discover things for themselves. Life Science Explainers are around to help you get the most out of your visit and there’s an ice rink if you stop by sometime between November and February.

Meet a full sized elephant at the family friendly Great North Museum where there’s also a large T-Rex skeleton, objects from Ancient Greece and lots more interactive fun to be had during Newcastle family days out.

Readers and writers in the family will love Seven Stories, the UK’s first children’s book museum. The walls are lined with shelves full of books to discover and there’s a dress up area where imaginations are set free through craft times, illustrations and story time.
