Follow the links to view some examples of the diversity of Geordie art, culture & design that has and indeed still does stimulate the cultural imagination of both Geordies and the now tens of thousands of tourists who visit the region every year. 

Apart from the world famous tourist routes along the ancient Hadrian’s Wall with its numerous Roman fortress ruins, the Geordie nation is also rich in cultural attractions such as historic monuments, magnificent landscapes, Castles, Priories & of course Cathedrals.

These fantastic places to wander are all available to view throughout the magnificent coastal & countryside areas of Northumberland, Tyneside & Durham.

The international recognition of Tyneside’s Bridges, the nearby Angel Of The North in Gateshead, and a top ten world tourism board ratings as a “party people place”, all combine to ensure Geordieland & it’s capital city of Newcastle Upon Tyne is one of the most attractive & culturally rich areas of the United Kingdom, Europe and the world.

    As a long term resident of Newcastle with a very Geordie teenager, would it be possible to promote my debut novel in the Geordie Arts section?

    Caught in the drift by Rob Robson, available on Amazon.
    Many thanks
