About The Directory

Whenever someone searches for a Geordie website, naturally they will enter the keyword and then usually the topic line they are looking for, ( i.e. Geordie History or Geordie Sport ) fully expecting to be able to view relevant information regarding the historical, cultural or even or sporting way of life in and around the Geordie cities of Durham & Newcastle Upon Tyne and the surrounding towns & villages of Northumberland & Tyneside.

Generally though, that is not what occurs, instead we will get a few excellent & relevant websites & web pages mixed in with hundreds if not thousands of web links that have little to do with Geordies or even in fact the area fondly known locally and around the world as Geordieland.


That’s where the Geordie directory comes in, because much of the excellent information can now be accessed by simply clicking on the many and varied picture and text links highlighted throughout our various directory sections.

Enjoy !! :D
