I love the gold seahorses on the sides of the benches down Northumberland Street.  They’re part of the City Council‘s coat of arms.

Eldon Square Bus Station

Eldon Square bus station, Newcastle, UK

It’s been open about 18 months now, but to the best of my knowledge there’s never been a picture posted of the new bus station at Eldon Square at Newcastle Daily Photo.  The bus concourse that used to run under Eldon Garden has been shut for a while now and this has replaced it.  At the back it links through St George’s Way into the Eldon Square extension that comes out at the other side of Old Eldon Square, directly into Starbucks and Waitrose (here’s a press release about Waitrose opening) and near Strada and Wagamama.  You can also come out next to the entrance to John Lewis.

Links about the bus station here and here.

Whistler Tea Room

whistler tea room, newcastle, uk

I’ve been at Haymarket hundreds and hundreds of times over the years.  I’ve walked past and I’ve waited for people there.  And I’ve never before looked up and noticed Whistler Tea Room over the Leeds Building Society before Thursday last week.

I should look up more often.  Newcastle’s a very rewarding city to look up in.
