Five Day Trips from Newcastle, England (PHOTOS)

If Newcastle, in North-East England, isn't on your list of places to visit in the United Kingdom, it's time to change the list. The city has changed unrecognizably over the last few years - it's now home to stunning modern architecture, a thriving arts scene and friendly locals (although those have always been there). It's also gateway to the incredible sights of the north of England - when you get some time out, here's where to go.
