Cafes of the North East: Cake Stories at Hoults Yard

Cafes of the North East: Cake Stories at Hoults Yard

This is my first post in a series of cafe reviews I’ll be bringing to my blog! We are now visiting a lot more of them than before and I thought why not add them to my blog! If you’re a fan of good cafe food, you need to visit Cake Stories at Hoults Yard. You might have already heard of Cake Stories as they have another cafe in Jesmond, Newcastle and one in Gateshead. They also do pretty epic looking “Letterbox Bakes’– where you can get brownies and cakes through your door! Which I have to admit sounds an…

Bongos Bingo Newcastle with 5ive! *

What is Bongos Bingo? Bongo’s Bingo is the new craze sweeping the UK. At first I thought “not for me”. But then I saw it EVERYWHERE. Then an invite to attend landed in my inbox and I thought, right, it’ll be an experience, let’s do this.  Then I saw that 5ive were doing a Bongos Bingo gig here in Newcastle, and I WAS SOLD. If you didn’t know, 5ive was one of my favourite bands when I was little. My mum and I used to sing along to them all the time and the chance to see them live I…

Great Exhibition of the North: The Design Trail with Tyne and Wear Metro

Great Exhibition of the North: The Design Trail with Tyne and Wear Metro

When I first came to Newcastle, I walked everywhere. I had lived in Newcastle for almost a whole year before I used a local bus or the metro. I was so sure I’d end up lost on it like I did with the tube. Fast forward five years, I commute everyday using the local buses and metro. I’ve come to regard Newcastle as home now. Staying put. There is something so warm and inviting about this part of the country, and it really is a “hidden gem”, and I believe part of what makes it so good up here, is…

Located at 55 Degrees North, it’s right in the centre of the city. A few minutes walk from either Central Station or Monument, and also…
