10 Hidden Gems Every Newcastle Student Needs To Discover Before Graduating
If you’re a student in Newcastle, make sure you discover these hidden gems before graduating.
1. Visit the Tyneside Cinema and Bar Café in the city centre.
At Tyneside Cinema, you’ll find cheaper cinema tickets than at the Empire. What’s more, the screens are all themed, and SO much cooler. The café is a bonus, serving breakfast through to dinner and if you’re looking for a caffeine/wine fix , you can get both here.
2. Or Sweet Memories at Study Café.
Just recently opened, this place ticks all the boxes for students in Newcastle. Catering to vegans, vegetarians and non-vegetarians, where else would you rather be “studying”?
3. If you’re into comedy, get to The Stand.
A quirky restaurant, with a comedy club underneath. If you really want a laugh, ‘The Suggestibles’ improv. show will have you in stitches. They’re only on once a month so make sure you book tickets!
4. And if you fancy a few drinks, head to No. 28, also in the city centre.
Do you like the sound of a late-night bar, with a leafy foliage / wrought iron décor? Then get yourself to No. 28 for cocktails, food and dancing. What’s even better is that there’s no entry fee!
5. If coffee’s your thing, go to Heaton Perk.
If you’re looking for a cup of coffee in a slightly more original setting than Starbucks, Heaton Perk is the place for you. A retro little café, in the heart of Heaton that has been inspired by FRIENDS’ Central Perk – of course!
6. Pop by The People’s Theatre.
At The People’s Theatre, there’s no need for your parent’s wallet. The outside might look a bit sketchy, but inside you can watch fantastic shows for as little as £11!
7. And if you fancy a daytime activity, head to Ouseburn.
This Tyneside neighbourhood has independent shops, cafes and music venues. Whatever you want, it’s got it. There’s even a farm!
8. The Bluebell is perfect for pub lovers.
Hidden away from the hub of Newcastle students in quiet Jesmond Vale is a cosy traditional pub. The large beer garden makes this place a perfect spot for summer-time drinking.
9. And for more fancy drinks, go to the Sky Lounge.
Hidden atop the Vermont Hotel, the Sky Lounge offers exquisite views, accompanied with delicious drinks. If you want to view Newcastle in a way like no other, (200ft above the ground) then this is the place for you.
10. And finally, to sort the weekends, visit the Wylam Brewery.
Open Thursdays to Sundays, the Wylam Brewery will fulfil all your keg and artisan wine needs.
