2023 England and Scotland - Day #6 - To Newcastle Upon Tyne

Tom, Anna-Marie, Sharon and I had breakfast at the 23 St. Mary's Guest House Bed and Breakfast. I had pancakes, while Sharon had an omelet.

After I dragged the bags down four flights of stairs, we took an Uber to the train station. The four of us caught a 10:30 am train from York to Newcastle Upon Tyne. It was an easy uneventful trip. The wireless was actually better than the nicer train on the trip from London to York.

In Newcastle, we pulled the luggage to the hotel; it was right around the corner from the train station. We are staying one night at the Indigo Hotel. The four of us dropped all of our bags.

We caught an Uber to the Roman Fort Segedunum. We had a little bit of a kerfuffle trying to find somewhere to eat lunch; we should have eaten around the hotel. We ended up at Sizzling Pubs on High Street near the Fort (burger and a wrap).

Afer exploring the museum and fort grounds, we hiked Hardian's Wall Way back to the hotel. We covered about 5.8 miles in two hours and twenty-four minutes. We screwed up a little and weren't carrying enough water and other supplies. We didn't make it back to the hotel until after 5:30 pm.

We finished the night with dinner at My Delhi. Putting her super power to good use, Sharon found a very nice restaurant. Tom had wanted Indian food. Sharon had the Railway Station Lamb Curry, while I had South Indian Fish Curry. We added Dum Pulao Rice, Plain Naan and a Indian Salad.
