Summer in Gateshead

Once a more industrial mining town Gateshead has undergone many changes and opened itself up as a fun northern city to explore. In summer months there are some outdoor museums, manor houses, parks and industrial sites worth seeing. Saltwell Park is great for families and picnics with a lot of space to explore, a ‘pet’s corner’ where you can pet the animals and interestingly an centuries old estate worth checking out. Alternatively, if you’re interested in old estates there’s Gibside, built in the 1600’s and easily drivable to from Gateshead. While Gibside’s main house is in ruin the sight of it is still impressive and the picturesque lands it stands on make for an amazing day out in warmer weather. Another daytrip worth considering is Beamish, an entire Edwardian Town rebuilt and reenacted. Visitors can see just how people lived back then with interactive exhibitions, working pubs, bakeries and more.
