Attractions in North East England
Marking the northern boundary of Roman Britain, Hadrian's
Wall is a fascinating 84 mile long construction set in some unforgettable
country from wild moorland to rural farmland. Visit visible sections
of wall, mile castles, towers, forts, ditches and Roman roads.
Love it or hate it, overlooking the A1 at Gateshead you'll find Britain's
largest sculpture, The
Angel of the North. This massive winged figure is the largest man
made sculpture in the UK.
Gateshead is not just a unique and extraordinary building, its a
world class music venue, offering high quality local, UK and international
music performances from a whole range of genres.
Step back in time and visit Beamish,
a living museum, set in more than 300 acres of countryside. It aims
to recreate life in Northern England in the early 1800s & 1900s.
For wet weather days (and shopaholics!) a visit to the MetroCentre
is a must. It offers Europe's largest shopping mall as well as a leisure
complex with its own cinema, theme park and Megabowl, plus plenty of
places to eat and drink.
