Discover Newcastle

A Mini Cruise to Newcastle is a great way to discover this hip city. With the DFDS bus transfer from the port to the city center waiting for you when you arrive, you have plenty of time to discover the city.

Visit Newcastle Castle, shop at Eldon Square Shopping Center, stroll along the River Tyne and admire the 7 bridges or enjoy a picnic on the Town Moor.

If you can't get enough of the sea, take a short 30-minute tube journey to Tynemouth. Enjoy fresh Fish & Chips with your toes in the sand.

Would you like to enjoy this great city a little longer? Book a city trip and stay 1 or 2 nights in a hotel of your choice in the center of Newcastle. This way you have enough time to discover the city and surroundings.
