ABC Wednesday N is for Newcastle

When I posted about our visit to Newcastle upon Tyne after our trip to the UK, I concentrated on the historic and religious sites and sights. Newcastle has a new side, too.

We arrived in Newcastle by train on Saturday night, and found, as we had been told by Sean back in the Highlands, that Newcastle has a very lively weekend night life. Looks pretty tame by day, though. The Center for Life, below, is not only an outstanding interactive science museum with exhibits of interest to all ages, but also a first line research center in the field of life sciences.

Wow - what a place! Looks wonderful.

Great pics. It's supposed to be a great city - and when I see pictures of the countryside up in the north east I always think 'I want to go there!'.

I like the top photo. "Live Jazz" always sounds good to me, as in "good idea" and also "good music"!!
Yes, Newcastle doesn't look like it's all coal mining any more.
