    I'm guessing you want something a bit more original than going to the Gate and that kinda stuff?

    Erm could see what's on at the Sage/Theatre Royal/Tyne Theatre?

    Does she like art? Could go to the biscuit factory or the baltic?

    I'll have a think!


    Edit: agreed with Yekim. Go to Newcastle/Sunderland dogs!! Cheap and tacky but it's a great night out.

    The Star And Shadow Cinema is pretty cool, it's in the Ouseburn valley if you don't know it.

    go ica skating in whitley bay. thats always a laugh.

    or take her to a comedy club

    or a ride on a boat on the tyne (although that could be a bit cold, but still fun)

    or striktly come dancing is on at the metro arena.



    personally i would be highly disapointed if i was taken to a dog track by a bf. just because it seem so man centred and not very thoughtfull.

    Well, it depends. Newcastle in Northern Ireland, or Newcastle upon Tyne, or Newcastle under Lyme?

    If it's Newcastle upon Tyne - admittedly, the only decent one out of the lot - then there are a fair few choices. There are several theatres in Newcastle, although the variety of shows is somewhat limited - or piss poor, so says the missus. You'd probably be better off catching a train connection to another city for a better show. Alternatively, there are a few theatres in South Shields and Sunderland that may have more choice.

    If she is into culture, art or museums, these abound. There are at least 4 musuems in or near the centre, and there is the Baltic and the Sage, which hosts many concerts, especially classical music and recitals.

    And, I know you've already done a meal, but if you haven't done it at Piccolino's, the Bridge, Brandishing Spears or the Silk Room, you haven't done it right. Without a doubt, these are the best restaurants in Newcastle. Admittedly, Piccolino's is a chain, but it is, frankly, amazing. Me and the missus like going out for meals, and don't think much of spending £150-250 on dinner provided it is good; and the above named places are worthy of the expense. You could probably do well for just under £150 as well.

    There is always the Gate - more restaurants, cocktail bars, a cinema and a casino. Don't underestimate the quality of a casino for a date. Take £20 each, watch a few games, play a little; it's a blast. Really.

    Christ, what;s wrong with the Monument Starbucks. IT'S GOT SOFAS DUHHHHH. And if you can;t work magic on a sofa then you deserve to fail. Other than that I'd suggest an Orange WEdneday shopping trip or a Thursday late night shopping trip - all cheap but effecitve.

    Fair enough, I think Manchester is pretty decent myself, and I love sankeys.

    Cheers for the neg rep if it was from you, not very original though!

    Go to the Metro Center- It has an Odeon IMax, good eating places, LOTS of shops, an arcade (its the biggest shopping center in the EU)...
    PLUS- its only £1.50 (with a railcard) or £2.30 (without a railcard) for a return train ticket from Newcastle Central to Metro Center.
