Nottingham Playhouse
Theatres
Laugh, cry, stroke your chin with an air of studied erudition! Nottingham Playhouse lets you tap into the full range of emotions, with a schedule that’s packed full of comedies, tragedies, stand-up and musicals. Pick up tickets from the box office, snaffle a pre-show burger at Cast restaurant, then take your seat for the big performance. Bravo!

Life Science Musuem
Museums
Meanwhile, back at the lab… Newcastle’s got something brewing. Jump into the action on the 4D Motion Ride, explore the universe at the planetarium and meet aspiring Einsteins in the Experiment Zone. The fun’s open to all ages, with interactive games available for even the littlest of scientists. Come along, get experimental and discover something new about Newcastle.

Angel of the North
Monuments
The Angel welcomes travellers to the North with a vast embrace. Its out-stretched wings have a span almost as wide as that of a jumbo jet, and its rusty form towers over the surrounding landscape. Visitors by road and rail will see the Angel as they approach Tyneside, but to meet her in person you can hop on bus 21 or 22 from Eldon Square in central Newcastle.
Accommodation near Angel of the North
York City Walls
Monuments
See York from a whole new perspective – any perspective! A walk of York’s City Walls is a must, so take advantage of good weather and make the full 2 hour circuit. Cross countless bars (gateways), stand guard on its ramparts, and prepare to feel like you’ve travelled back in time as you conquer this medieval masterpiece.
Accommodation near York City Walls
York Castle Museum
Museums
Where the former York Castle once proudly stood, York Castle Museum now takes residence. An ideal spot for rainy-day sight-seeing, the museum exhibits all manner of post-medieval artefacts. Stroll back in time along a re-constructed Victorian street, marvel at the fun and fascinating history of toys, and be sure to peek inside the spooky Castle Prison – if you dare!
