Luckily Newcastle has a couple of places you can climb for views over the Tyne and my favourite has to be the views from our art gallery, the Baltic. There's a viewing platform on Level 5 but the best place to head is always Level 6 which is the home to rooftop restaurant "Six".
My favourite thing to do is grab a table in the relaxing lounge area at the front of the restaurant where if you're very lucky you can get yourself a table or sofa right by the window which stretches from floor to ceiling and boasts amazing views of our iconic bridges. It's the perfect place to sip coffee or scoff some afternoon tea.
Six has the best coffee that I have had in Newcastle/Gateshead so far. Their vanilla latte is so sweet and creamy. We've been known to sit there for a while and order ourselves refill after refill. I don't think I'd ever want to pick anything else off the coffee menu because I love it so much. When we found ourselves up on the roof recently though Simon's obsession with chocolate orange got the better of him and he tried a liqueur coffee.
If anyone else has any recommendations of beautiful bars or restaurants offering amazing views anywhere else in the country I'd love to hear about them.
