Gateshead Quays.

Extracts from this document...


Manpreet Mander Gateshead Quays When I used to think about Gateshead Quays, I used to think of Newcastle, which in turn made me think about Byker Grove and good old Ant and Dec. Now when I think of Gateshead I think about its fantastic new millennium bridge and its amazing music centre and Baltic centre. Gateshead has come a long way from what it once was. All its life it has been linked to Newcastle even though they are at opposite ends of the Tyne. Finally, after the regeneration of Gateshead, people no longer think about things that are around Gateshead but they think of the things that are inside it. When you come along to visit Gateshead there are three areas, which cannot be missed. I am talking about the three huge regenerated areas within Gateshead. The regeneration of this area began with the building of the artistic Gateshead Millennium Bridge. Although the Tyneside River already has a collection of historic bridges, the new Millennium Bridge has a unique design and has attracted worldwide attention. ...read more.


Every time that this bridge opens, it will only cost three pounds sixty pence, not only does it cost a small amount to run, it is very time efficient as well. Each time that it opens or closes, it will only take it a small four minutes. Here is some good news for all of you environmentally friendly people, all the rubbish that may have been thrown on to the bridge will automatically roll into the special traps at each end of the deck every time the bridge opens. Our new bridge seems to be loved so much by everyone that it has also featured on a new first class stamp. This is the first place that is 'a must' see for everyone. You may be thinking that it is just a bridge, but it is a fantastic experience when you watch it open and if you happen to be there at night, you will get to see its beautiful lights sparkling in the Tyne. The second part of the regeneration began with the music centre. ...read more.


Where the centre stands today, a disused flourmill once stood in the ninety fifties. Contemporary art, the artists and the audience influenced the way in which this building has been constructed. The Baltic houses five different galleries, three artists' spaces, performance arts spaces, cutting-edge media lab, cinema and lecture space, library and archive, a retail outlet and bookshop, a rooftop restaurant, a riverside restaurant, which has a caf´┐Ż and bar along with an open air terrace and it also contains a extravagant viewing box overlooking the Tyne Millennium Bridge. With all of its amazing features, you would expect it to charge a huge price to enter and sights see. Well, the other fantastic feature of the Baltic is that its admission is completely free. The Baltic is another wonderful place to visit with the entire family. It will educate you in areas, which you feel you have no knowledge in and it will add a little culture to the lives of our children. Therefore, when in Gateshead Quays, these three wonderful places must be visited. However, make sure you spare more than just a few minutes for each one because when you finally see them you will never want to leave. ...read more.
