What To Do and Where To Eat This Week


This week we're celebrating World Wellness Week and getting ready for an evening of summer lovin'

North East

What To Do: 
As it’s World Wellbeing Week, we thought it best you indulge in some much needed me-time. Yoga is the perfect remedy to relieve built-up stress, alleviate your worries and escape reality whilst building physical fitness. To get a real sense of zen this week, grab a mat and visit Yoga Therapies – a Newcastle-based business with mindfulness at their core. With studios in Newcastle city centre, Heaton, Gosforth and Durham, Yoga Therapies offers more than 80 classes throughout the week, giving you the flexibility to immerse yourself in an authentic yoga experience. 

Where To Eat:
For a real summer treat by the seaside, head to the Northumberland coastal town of Cresswell where you’ll find The Drift Café. This snug tearoom is situated just 100 yards from the beach and sits on the road from Cresswell to Druridge Bay, making it the perfect pit stop for cyclists and beach-goers alike. Their diverse menu is impressive for such a small café, packed with delicious offerings from homemade cakes to freshly prepared wraps to delight even the most pickiest of eaters. What’s more, The Drift is completely dog-friendly, meaning your furry friend can wait for a crumb to drop whilst you tuck into a hearty pie.


What To Do:
It’s got groove, it’s got meaning and now it’s got a slot in your calendar. Dust off your T-Bird leathers or pick out your Pink Lady best and prepare for one of the all-time classic musicals – now grittier and more glamorous than ever. If you’re lucky you might even get to see Peter André or Ore Oduba as Teen Angel in certain special performances. Tickets start from just £15, so get ready for an explosion of summer loving! 

Where To Eat: 
Having only opened its doors last year, Ellsworth Kitchen is already a firm favourite with foodies in Skipton. Run by experienced husband and wife team, Bruce and Rebecca Ellsworth, this stylish new eatery has local produce at its heart. Their meat is sourced from an award-winning local butcher and their vegetables are picked straight from the family’s allotment, ensuring every dish is as fresh and tasty as can be. This Wednesday marks National Chocolate Pudding Day, so why not round off your meal with some of Ellsworth’s fluffy chocolate mousse (it would be rude not to).
