噼里啪啦It's an industrial city
[Scenery] Generally speaking, the scenery here is ordinary in British cities, because it is regarded as a northern city.
[Fun] Not much history
[Value for money] Consumption is very reasonable
300***74Drive north from Durham to Newcastle. Compared to Durham Village, Newcastle is a big city. At Durham Railway Station, I also saw a few students going to Newcastle for dinner. The train arrived in about ten minutes. Here I actually saw the city wall, Hadrian’s Great Wall. In fact, this is the northernmost border of the British province of the Roman Empire. There are similarities and similarities with the Chinese city wall. They both defend against the invasion of the North. Along the Tyne River from west to east is the entrance to the sea. In those days, the King of England built some castles here, consisting of a main building with a wooden spire and an earthen outer wall. New castle is the source of the name of Newcastle.
ken_travelThe sixth floor here is the archives of local history in Newcastle. The maps are all framed and placed on the cover of a hard book, many of which are in different periods. Government reports, newspaper summaries, local news, magazines, etc. are all bound and stored here. Is this equivalent to a county chronicle?
ken_travelfree. From Durham Railway Station, you can walk to here, not far, the scenery along the way is also good. Along the Weir River and see the wild growth of the plants by the river, you need to know that it was brought back from the foothills of the Indian side of the Himalayas by the order of the Queen of England. Have you seen this small weir in the Weir River? Every year in July and August, salmon and trout come from the sea to lay their eggs upstream from the sea across this weir. Maybe you said, why is the water so mixed here? Yes, it is mixed but odorless, it is actually a safe vegetable oil discharge. The church stands on a peninsula surrounded by River Wear on three sides, also for reasons of ease of defense and difficulty of attack.
The most fun thing about the church is that you can take pictures! Can take pictures! There is no warning sign prohibiting photography anywhere in the church! There is even a clear text reminder that you are welcome to take pictures! For this reason, I also specifically consulted the priest here. He said a lot, but in general, it is only this year that the prohibition of taking pictures is only available this year, but I still hope that visitors will be conscious and not affect other activities such as prayers or take pictures.
Churches will ring the bell, the older the church, the more so, but who knows when the church bell will ring? The church will strike at 1 quarter of an hour, half an hour, three quarters of an hour, and the whole hour, and tones 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively; in addition, it will strike the whole point with another tone on the whole hour. How did that sound? Is it smart? Someone is actually responsible! The bell is located at the top of the church. Three ropes hang from there. The bell-ringer will ring it every time it is time to tell the time. But this is a secret. You are not allowed to watch the church!
The church has a long history, and of course there is no shortage of historical legends. There are stories about Cuthbert, the cause of the church’s creation. There are stories about Vikings plundering wealth and attacking here. There is also a king who tried to plunder treasure and destroy Cuthbert, and Hitler once wanted to blow up here but was saved by layers of clouds. These gimmicks, let's check these by yourself.

It is a tilted bridge and is the world The first and only pendulum bridge is designed for pedestrians and cyclists. It connects the Gateshead Wharf Arts District on the South Bank to the docklands of Newcastle upon Tyne on the North Bank. In 2002, he won the authoritative Stirling Architectural Design Award in the construction industry! This bridge is sometimes called the "Blink Bridge". The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is slightly shorter than the adjacent Tyne Bridge and is the 16th tallest building in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Newcastle upon Tyne is an interesting place to visit. It is located in Northeast England and is a University town. The classic architecture is stunning, especially lite up at night. If your in the area it is worth a visit. #merrychristmas
Warkworth Castle is about 50 kilometers on the outskirts of Newcastle. The remains of English Heritage are now well protected. Although the castle has been ruined a lot, it still feels spectacular. At the ticket office, I asked the person in charge: There are probably as many silly questions about the castle in the UK, and I was told that there are thousands of them... On the other side of the Warkworth Castle, there is a hidden attraction that is not open daily and can only be reached by boat. The ruins of this stone are full of stories. I don't know if you have been to Turkey. It is a bit like a cave church over there. The pile of stones outside the church is said to be a kitchen. The town of Warkworth can be seen from Warkworth Castal. The town has a very long history, dating back to 737 AD. It is now a tourist attraction. This scene, watching it looks like Junlin City... The story of Warkworth Castle is very long. The process is exactly the same as the history of the regime of the ancient dynasty in China. This castle has also experienced several guns and rains, witnessing a The rise and fall of a royal family and the changes of the times. Compared with other castles, this castle seems to be relatively deserted. There are not many records that can be found on the Internet. However, this kind of historical monument that has been experienced and stands proudly has spread this kind of temperament with the passage of time.
