Visiting to see Newcastle play on a Saturday, 12.30 KO. Any suggestions (other than visit the pub) of things to do / see after the game until early evening (and then it's food and pubs!).

Pubs, food, pubs or Pubs, pubs, food is usual. If you are still here for the Sunday morning the Quayside market and walks over the bridges can be good for bri ging you round, as is Tynemouth market and Tynemouth itself. If you really want to go for it do probably the best bit of the Wall taking in Steel rigg and Sycamore gap but you'll need to drive.

 

 

Also worth checking when the Castle keep is open, it's licensed and the guides are full of knowledge.

If you walk over the Tyne Bridge then swing left towards the millennium bridge you can have a look into the sage and baltic, down the Newcastle side of the Quayside over the swing bridge and back to the Newcastle side on the High Level. Plenty of places to stop for a drink or two if you don't want too much before the night.

If you want some kind of cheesy activity to break up the pubbing and the good local culture suggestions so far, by the Gate in the city centre (which is also near Back page) there's a space themed mini golf course

And next to that a laser shooting gallery thing

Lane 7 worth a shout on that theme.

Aye, Lane 7 is great, usually go there for work Christmas. Bowling, beer pong, mini golf, kareoke booth, pool etc. Probably need to book ahead on a weekend.

Junkyard golf is better, only 1 min walk from Mr Mulligan's.

We had my boy’s after season footy presentation there just before Xmas and it was class, the kids loved it and upstairs there was a lively atmosphere for the adults.

Just have a walk about, down by the monument, Grey st etc down to the Quayside. Stop off for a coffee. Good way to get a feel for the area. Its what I like to do in a new town, just have mooch about.

Maybe you're a bit more cultured and the Hancock and Discovery Museums are more your choice for day activities...  Both might close at 4 though 

 

The Laing Art Gallery is open till 5, though the would have to camp out until September if you fancy a neb at the Lindisfarne Gospels.

For a real experience of Newcastle, find a horse and punch it spark out and then punch up a phone box. Then head to the Black Garter and experience the sensation of sticky piss on your soles, it’s actually good for the soul.

Or you could try a bit of ABH and criminal damage and experience the north east's famous court and prison systems.

 

Though apparently the internet access is a bit lacking.

 

Looking at you Mr Celtic96. :ninja:

We used to clean the offices behind there and I regularly used to bang wor lass (from behind) in full view of onlookers working upstairs in the Laing Art Gallery. We eventually lost the contract, but were never told why, I obviously know the real reason…
