“The Life Science Centre offers a combination of hands-on and display exhibits which have been designed to bring out your inner scientist, whilst having some fun in the process. Life also has a special area for under 7’s. This museum does have an admission charge and I would only recommend paying if there is an exhibition on. From November to February, Life hosts an outdoor ice rink in Times Square, just outside the Science Centre. ”

Museum
“Steeped in history this imposing Norman fortress, in the center of Newcastle Upon Tyne, is a rugged reminder of northern England's turbulent history. This was no baron's stately home. Newcastle Castle is a grim reminder of royal authority where armies gathered, and criminals were imprisoned and executed. It is where the story of Newcastle began, the reason the city got its name and has the most commanding views over the city and the River Tyne.”
