Fraggle Report~River Tyne Cruise~July 2017

A couple of weeks ago, when it wasn’t rain, Sophie and I embarked on one of the river cruises which set off from the Quayside in Newcastle. There are 2 choices, you can go Quay to sea, a 3 hour trip to the piers at the river mouth, or Quay to countryside, a 2 hour trip going under 11 bridges, as far as Ryton Willows, which is the one we took.

more to come so stay tooned!



  1. Good idea to get on the river, and see the other side of the buildings. Is that first bridge just an ‘ornament’, or can you actually cross it?
    Looking forward to part two.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Yes you can cross it, they raise it at certain times of the day for ships/sailboats to go through. Cheers Pete.
