Gateshead's Great Outdoors


There's so much on your doorstep here in Gateshead and to make sure you're enjoying it all, we have a family stay & fun experiences to be won!

Already thinking about how you're going to keep the kids entertained for the six week summer holiday? Why not get out and explore Gateshead’s great outdoors, as there's so much to see and do!

Gateshead has some fantastic attractions and historical sites and it's just a stone's throw away… And to prove it, we sent Drivetime's Tom to try out a whole load of fun activities. See what he got up to in the video above.

Whether you’re taking a casual stroll through the country parks, jumping aboard the world’s oldest steam train, getting active on a bike or having a play with farmyard animals - rural Gateshead has something for everyone.

If you're after an adventure, why not head to Chopwell Woods and Thornley Woodlands Centre? As you could be spotting one of the re-introduced red kites, a roe deer, otter or a fox.

How about getting stuck in to some of Gateshead's industrial heritage by visiting Tanfield or Bowes Railways - perfect for those young train lovers. Or if you're looking for the best place for a chill out with the kids there's the peaceful grounds of Gibside and Gateshead’s historic Derwent Valley. Don't forget, you can get around using the public transport links across Gateshead too.

And when you're planning a great day out, you can't forget about food! There’s loads of places to choose from, whether you're after a light bite or a slap up meal. And if you're thinking of something sweet and tasty, how about the delightful Daniel Farm for a sumptuous afternoon tea?
