For couples or singletons ravenous for a rave, Newcastle has an endless array of clubs to party all night long to – music is the fruit of love after all. Check out Tup Tup Palace, Perdu, Florita’s, Madame Koo and many other options to find your dancing haven.

If you want something even more unusual, Newcastle is home to the Life Centre where you can gaze (comfortably and warmly) at the stars from within the Planetarium. Or stroll around Newcastle Castle to find breathtaking views of the city from above, escape with waterfalls and walkways at Jesmond Dene or just cosy up with the latest romcom at the Vue or Cineworld.
