The classic view from the monument down the hill towards the river, nellies alley and the back of the medieval house, the view along westgate street now that westgate house has been demolished, the city wall around china town, the china town gate, the really old buildign in that area... is it an old monastic building? And some of the amazing Byker estate. that woudl be amazing

Great photos and a great city.

Newcastle has fantastic architecture and some fascinating streetscapes - some of the sloping lanes around and under the Tyne Bridge are magical. The Geordies are great too, very warm and welcoming, with a great sense of humour............and I'll be going again in September, when I take part in the Great North Run! I can't wait to run over the Tyne Bridge with everybody cheering me on!!!!

I love the way buildings are banked up on top of one another, and the tunnel-like streets. It's a shame some modernist boxes get in the way of the topography . . . I would love to blow them up.

Wow, the interweaving of the bridges and streets is quite stunning! It looks like the city has received some substantial investment!

Nice tour. I love the way The Quayside looks now compared with what it was like in "Get Carter"!

Hopefully some of those 60s brutes will come down sometime soon.
