Rediscovering Newcastle

Here are some snaps I took today – I bought a new Nikon D3100 so I had to try it out! ūüôā

Newcastle ¬†is famous (or infamous, depending how you look at it!) for wild nights out involving a flurry of fake tan, ¬†skimpy outfits and cheap drinks,¬†and it’s pretty much considered the drinking capital of the UK. To be honest, I don’t think many people outside of the¬†North East ¬†realise that the city has much more to offer than bargain booze and fancy dress nights out. One of my favourite things about it is the architecture – Newcastle, especially the city centre and the¬†Quayside (riverside), is a lovely mixture of 15th-19th century houses, crooked ¬†Medieval-style streets and modern ¬†buildings. ¬†PERFECT for taking photos! :
