When the weather’s this good there’s no reason to stay inside. Head to The Rusty Bike in Swainby where you can rent a bike from the café to cycle the North York Moors. Finish your trip back at the café where you can treat yourself to a well deserved coffee and cake as you watch the sun set into the Moors.
Whether you’re catching some rays on your lunch break, or in the mood to watch the sun go down over the Tyne, check out the brand new shipping container village By The River Brew Co nestled under the iconic bridge on the Gateshead side. Wander your way over to the Brewery & Tap room to sample between 20 keg lines from the Micro Brewery and then refuel at the Träkol Restaurant where you can try dishes cooked over open flames. Even more of your favourite street food vendours will be popping up and serving coffee, authentic international cuisines and cocktails over the coming weeks.
Celebrate this sunshine streak with a refreshing Beyond The Sky cocktail – a delicious mix of amaretto, cranberry juice and vanilla syrup with a sprinkle of basil leaves to garnish. Better yet, enjoy it outside on Angelica’s wrap around rooftop terrace overlooking the Leeds city sky line. Feeling peckish? Graze on sharing boards or a couple of oysters as you make the most of the evening.
The much-anticipated Mouth of the Tyne festival returns to Tynemouth Priory for yet another star-studded weekend of music. Kicking things off on Thursday is the award-winning singer and former The Voice judge Paloma Faith, who’ll be bringing music from her new album The Architect, alongside her classics. She’ll be joined by special guest Liam Bailey, whose vocals are oozing with old school soul, reggae, and blues.
