The cruise ship Norwegian Jade visits the Tyne.
One of the most colourful ships to visit the Tyne will be arriving on Monday.
Newcastle chauffeur cars have private tours booked going north to Alnwick and Bamburgh castles, and with the tides being in our favor, also visits to the stunning Lindisfarne Island are possible until 12:45.
To the west we have a tour to the stunning Hadrians Wall and forts and Museums.
Going south we have a party going to the ever-expanding Beamish museum, but nothing as yet going to Durham. With its winding streets full of quaint boutique shops for the ladies, magnificent cathedral for the history buffs and not forgetting the many traditional English pubs for the ale connoisseur, we think its a very worthwhile visit and in our Angels and Saints tour we can even visit the Angel of the North statue, so come on cruisers there's still time to book a tour.
