Attractions near the County Hotel By Thistle

Explore the Quayside restaurant precinct

A short stroll from the hotel takes you to the Quayside hub of restaurants, bars and cafes. Whether dining at ultra-sophisticated restaurants or casual chic pubs, you can enjoy views of the River Tyne and the seven bridges that cross it. For classic pub meals that are quintessentially British, take a seat at Broad Chare to eat crusted Scotch eggs, hand-raised pork pies and cauliflower fritters.

Fine-dining foodies will be drawn to The Brasserie at Sage Gateshead, a stylish and elegant setting featuring decadent a la carte options such as cider-braised pork belly with black pudding mash and creamy cider sauce. The experimental menu can be enjoyed as a two- or three-course meal.

Discover the history of Newcastle

Less than one kilometre from the hotel is the renowned Discovery Museum, which promises an entertaining snapshot of Newcastle’s rich heritage. A hybrid of maritime and social history, military paraphernalia, science and technology displays, and elaborate costumes, the Museum boasts an impressive array of interactive exhibits that delight curious minds and history enthusiasts.

Upon entering, you're greeted by ‘Turbinia’, the world's first ship powered by steam turbine. Next, you can discover a fascinating collection of unique inventions exclusive to the museum, along with permanent collections that celebrate local ingenuity.
