The galleries, restaurants and concert venues beside the River Tyne are an easy 15-minute drive or Metro ride from the hotel. Walk across the Gateshead Millennium Bridge to enjoy exhibitions at the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, classical, rock or jazz concerts at the futuristic Sage Gateshead, or enjoy a night out at the clubs and bars along the renowned, redeveloped Quayside.
The Tyneside countryside and the coast are both within easy reach by car. You can be strolling along the promenade or building sandcastles on the beach in Whitley Bay within half an hour. The rolling moors and rugged peaks of Northumberland National Park are only 40 minutes away, and you can have a great day out exploring on foot, by bike or even on horseback.
