Urban Translation Tour

  • Description

    "Urban Translation is an alternative tour of Newcastle.

It started with a question, ‘how have changing attitudes, grand visions and happy accidents helped shape this city and which places tell this story?’ And so, after lots of walking and talking, this route emerged which will take you through parts of Newcastle that aren’t found on the tourism maps or in the usual heritage or architecture trails but which we think present challenging questions and opportunities for the future...."
