Attractions in Gateshead in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... tends to get quite slippery. I noticed my Daughter seemed to be struggling a bit to walk on the sand. The bigger of the frames is definitely loved by my Daughter, it again has 2 slides with one being bigger than the other. Iit has wooden bridges and platforms as well as ropes and tunnels, a firm favourite for the kids. The Bowling Green: Saltwell Park actually has 3 bowling greens in total. I have never used them and I have to say everytime I visit the park, nobody else seems to use them either. The Rose Garden: This is a beautiful part of the park to have a walk through and see all of the different coloured roses. Saltwell Towers... more

Rather than writing a review about different attractions in Gateshead, I have just decided to review Saltwell Park in general.

I'm going to try my best to be unbiased in this and not make it a giant advert! I worked at Mister Twisters for 8 months last year and I had a brilliant time.

So for those of you who dont live up in the north east, Mister Twisters is a soft play centre for children. There are three centres at the moment; Gateshead, Consett and Hartlepool and i do believe there are plans to build a fourth. Mister Twister is a giant mouse! ADDRESS Unit 15E Follingsby ...

It has always been Gateshead's misfortune to be compared to Newcastle, its northern neighbour just across the Tyne. Indeed, aside from the old legend that Defoe wrote 'Robinson Crusoe' while briefly residing in Gateshead, if you'd asked me a mere five years ago to sum up its attractions and main claims to fame I would have struggled to name anything but the MetroCentre and the International Stadium. However, after undertaking some impressive flagship projects in the last few years, the town has now submitted a joint bid with Newcastle to be the European City of Culture in 2008. Many dismiss the bid, and deride Gateshead Council as being guilty of ... Read the complete review
