Angel-Of-The-North-ProfileDiscover The Diversity Of Geordie Art & Culture.

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 castles, cathedrals & coastal priories, all available to view amongst the scenic setting of the magnificent coastline & countryside areas of Northumberland, Tyneside & Durham.

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

The area rightly boasts of a magnificent coastline lined with long sandy beaches that stretch from South Shields on the south side of river Tyne, Tynemouth, Cullercoats & Whitley Bay on the north side of the Tyne right through to Berwick Upon Tweed on the Scottish borders.

Five of these beaches currently (2010) hold Blue flag status which is awarded to coastal destinations with the highest standards of water quality, cleanliness, safety and environmental management.
