The Landmark of Earl Grey's Monument
The Earl Grey's Monument is an iconic structure in Newcastle and although the city has well and truly reinvented itself in recent years, becoming a modern and trendy city, this tall column provides a taste of the past. It can be found at one end of Grey St. and was erected in 1838. I understand that it has quite a history. It was definitely worth finding if you are looking for the main sights of Newcastle. It is a very photographed site and often appears on postcards.

A Visit to Saltwell Park in Newcastle
We spent a morning visiting Saltwell Park, which is quite close to Newcastle city centre and apparently recently won a big aware for being the 'Best Park' in the UK. It had all of the required elements of a traditional park, like a big lake with boats, a pretty rose garden, and even some animals. There were also a lot of listed buildings and a restored mansion, which was unfortunately closed on the day we were there.
