My Ultimate Newcastle City Guides

I've been writing for Wow 247 Newcastle since last Summer and have managed to write over 25 articles sharing some of my favourite things about the Toon.

I love putting the guides together and thought it was about time I shared a few of my favourites on New Girl in Toon as there are loads of great recommendations that you should check out.

Just click on each title for the full article and enjoy!

Fantastic Free Things to do in Newcastle

It feels like Simon and I are constantly saving for something!  Houses and weddings don't come cheap so we've become pros in filling our weekends with fun free things to do in Newcastle to keep ourselves out of mischief.   I put together a list of 25 things to do that are not only free but also offer a great day out in our beautiful city.

The best places for Street Food in Grainger Market

Eating my way round Grainger Market is one of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday and in this guide I share my favourite places in the Market for street food.  From savoury lunches at Pizza By the Slice to delicious homemade cakes from the ladies at Pet Lamb Patisserie.  There really is something for everyone.

The best coffee shops in Newcastle

I love the coffee shop culture - finding a peaceful corner and snuggling up with a book and a cup of something delicious is the best way to spend a lazy afternoon.  We're very lucky in Newcastle to have some of the very best independent coffee shops and here are just a few of my favourites.

The best breakfasts in Newcastle

Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day and in an ideal world I'd ditch the traditional three meals a day and instead have Brunch and Afternoon Tea every day instead (heaven).  There are so many places in Newcastle that do amazing breakfast so picking out the best breakfasts was hard work!  I hope you agree with my choices.

The best pizzas in Newcastle

Simon was very happy when we went out and about researching the best pizzas in Newcastle and who can blame him!  We have a lot of absolute gems in Newcastle with the Gusto Peking Duck Pizza being my personal favourite.

The best Winter Warmers in Newcastle

I hate being cold so I was more than happy to run about Newcastle trying loads of gorgeous hot dishes to warm myself up for this article.  With pies, soups and hot dessert recommendations - the answer to warm bellies and snuggly toes are right here!

Things to do on a Winter's Day

Anyone else struggle to make plans when the weather is a bit pants?  Well, your days of trying to come up with ideas of what to do are over as I have plenty here with loads of indoor things to keep you warm, dry and entertained for hours!

Newcastle Foodie Secrets You Need to Know

The Newcastle foodie scene has so many little secrets that you may not know about.  Quirky places to grab a bite, hidden restaurants and exclusive food experiences. I let you into all the secrets that will keep you busy for the rest of the year.

I'm sure I've missed out plenty of Newcastle's gems so please do let me know if there's anywhere that didn't make my guides that I need to check out.
