Tuesday - Newcastle

Originally I hadn’t intended to go into Newcastle but I was overdue for a visit to the Discovery Museum, unfortunately, as I found when I arrived there, they’re currently remodelling part of the building ready for the arrival of Stephenson’s Rocket. That meant my main reason for visiting, Parson’s ship Turbinia, wasn’t fully accessible. I found navigating round the city a bit tricky, it’s 33 years since I lived there and my memory isn’t what it used to be.
