Get into the Christmas spirit & visit a Christmas market…right on your doorstep! Explore the flavours of the world with food traders on Grey Street and Grainger Street. There’s lots of gifts and craft stores too perfect for those last minute stocking fillers. Catch the bus there and spend your time queuing for a mulled wine rather than a car parking space!

You will also be spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat, drink and relax during your visit with an exciting choice of cafés and restaurants.

 Days / Nights out with friends

Our day tickets offer unlimited travel from the first bus to   the last, so why not leave the car at home catch the bus into work and back home after your big night out in Newcastle. You drink, we drive!
