Newcastle and Gateshead are twinned cities connected by the architecturally-striking Gateshead Millennium Bridge. It is a tilt bridge used by pedestrians and cyclists and is one of the things to visit while here.

In addition, in the 12th century a new castle was built here to protect the river Tyne, and the city became so-named. This was a royal castle close to the border with Scotland and is worth a visit. On a similar vein, Hadrian’s Wall, built with similar intent by the Romans, is a short drive to the north.

The Quayside is a stroll beside historic buildings, pubs and craft shops and a popular meeting place. On Sundays there is a market. To discover what else to do in Newcastle go to our article Creating New Heritage in Newcastle and Gateshead – Travel Begins at 40

Getting a contract to write for Roger Lascelles Publications on Trinidad and Tobago, and The Bahamas was how his career began. With this opportunity came other pieces for British magazines, The Sunday Telegraph and now Travel Begins at 40.
