After lunch in the Biscuit Factory, we went off to see the Laing Art Gallery. On the way, we came across a little church hall
and as you can see from the sign on the right (which I completely missed in the photo!) had an art exhibition. Well, we came for art, so decided to do a detour and see what was going on. It turned out to be a one-woman exhibition by one of the church’s congregation.
and this was the artist
Her arty bits were interesting, with lots of cut and folded canvasses
but I don’t think I’d have them on my wall. The artist lady was very nice and chatty so we wished her luck and went on our merry way.
We spotted a Lutheran Church for German-speaking Geordies
and back by the blue student accommodation, this time sneaking a peek in the windows
There are a couple of furniture shops in the area.
Newcastle has its own version of Boris Bikes
and plenty of cafes
We went back over the flyover and spotted a breakdown
and we peeked through the bars of the graffiti building corridor which is my featured image at the top of the post.
The New Bridge Hotel nearby. Probably not a 4 star 🙂
and then we got to the Laing gallery, but that can wait for the next post, so stay tooned for that!
