Newcastle and the surrounding areas have one of the most extensive and usable public transport systems in the country, with great inter-regional access provided by train and aeroplane, an impressive bus network, and the Metro system providing a transport backbone throughout the entire north east, from the airport to the coast, and as far as Sunderland.
Durham Bonfire Night
As darkness falls the Alnwick Gardens fill with light during its Winter Evening Lights series. Admire the illuminated Grand Cascade or the spookily illuminated Poison Garden or choose your night and enjoy live blues or cooking demonstrations.
It's Durham's time to shine this November with the return of Lumiere. A festival of lights and showmanship, it draws dozens of artists who create installations and illuminations in the city, all using the dazzling power of light.
