Our top picks close to this hotel
The Hancock Museum is the north’s premier natural history collection and is very child friendly. The collections span the length and breadth of the world and with a diverse range of permanent and temporary exhibits, there will be something for everyone. Kids tend to love the prehistoric sections, in particular the ‘prehistoric autopsy’ and the staggering selection of Roman artefacts, some of which were recovered from nearby Hadrian’s Wall. You need at least a whole day to experience this fascinating place.
The Laing is home to a very impressive collection of art, sculptures and other works by some of the world’s greatest modern and classical names. A quiet and reflective place, the collections are well worth a ponder with your other half and the Henry Moore sculptures are particularly worth a look.
The BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Arts has a stunning riverside location on the south bank of the River Tyne in a landmark, industrial building. With no permanent collection, the Baltic has an ever changing, interesting schedule of events which gives an interesting flash of insight into the contemporary arts world. With four diverse gallery spaces that can play host to a wide variety and size of exhibition, you will find something to please you.
The Cherry Tree is a fabulous, contemporary restaurant with a lovely mezzanine floor and a fresh, funky modern British menu which are coupled together to deliver a first class dining experience.
