Spending Christmas in Newcastle

Posted on December 18, 2019

Newcastle is a pretty amazing place to spend time in all year round, but Christmas brings the fun and festivities to another level.

Don’t Miss …

This year’s Christmas market is taking over the city, spreading throughout the streets. On offer are a wide range of stalls selling the perfect Christmas gifts from the traditional to the unusual. No Christmas shopping trip or market would be complete without some fantastic food and drink to keep you going and enhance the merriment.

Grab yourself some dirty fries, specialist hot dogs or a tasty sweet treat, not to mention the mulled wine and hot toddies. There’s nothing greater than a wander round a festive market on a crisp, cold day with winter warmers to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.

Whether you’ve tried it and loved it or never dared to put a foot on the ice, the festive season wouldn’t be complete without a skate on the ice rink outside the Centre for Life, followed by a warm hot chocolate or festive tipple.

Awaken your Inner Child …

If you fancy a bit of fun, why not take some time to awaken your inner child by visiting the rides on Blackett Street. There’s a giant toboggan, a helter-skelter and plenty of children’s fairground rides to bring a bit of fun and laughter to your festive season.

If you’ve never experienced a British pantomime or you loved them but haven’t been for years, a trip to see Cinderella might be just the thing for you and a group of friends.

Whether you are spending time with loved ones, away from home, with friends or on your own, you will never be short of things to do, places to go and people to meet in the vibrant festive atmosphere that comes to the city at Christmas time.
