It's happened. The snow has arrived and the country has come to a complete standstill. If you're already sick of being stuck indoors (I know I am) then check out StreetAways list of the best things to do when it snows in Newcastle. It's the definitive run down of some of the best snow day activities in NE1, and it's bound to have something that will keep you entertained until the snow melts! ❄️
Great North Museum - Hancock
This museum is a real gem, and holds some true treasures! Take a seat in the planetarium, wander around the animal hall, and learn about the history of the North. And make sure you don't miss out the exhibit on Ancient Egypt, home to a real Egyptian Mummy! Even better - entry is completely free! The Great North Museum is the perfect place to wile away a snowy day.
Do you wanna build a snowman?
Pretend you're a kid again! Head to the Town Moor or Saltwell Park and build a snowman with your pals if the snow is thick enough. ⛄️ Don't forget carrots and a couple of spare scarves or risk having a couple of very sad looking creations. And remember, snowmen make great shields during a snowball fight, so the bigger the better!
Mr Mulligan's Space Golf
All this snow making you miss out on heading to the green? Don't worry, you can get your fill at Mr Mulligan's Space Golf! Play 18 holes and you can easily spend a day out of the snow with your friends! And with a fab restaurant and an out of this world late night bar, you don't even have to leave for food.
