"Loads of bars and clubs. Shopping centres, cinemas and loads of restaurants as well as gyms and swimming pools."

"Plenty of clubs and bars and restaurants. Cinema, comedy clubs etc if you are looking for something different and not just a session."
"Loads of nightclubs with different music. Angel of the North. The beach. Tyne bridge. Go Ape/paintballing/go-karting. Concerts."
"It's Newcastle, there are plenty of places to drink! Of course you are also close to Tynemouth and Whitley Bay if you fancy a day at the beach and close to the national park and Hadrian's Wall of you want to go walking. There's quayside and the Angel too, there's always something going on!"
"Newcastle has an exceptionally buzzing night life. There is definitely something for everyone and it's very affordable."
"Some amazing places, but also can be a bit of a Hell-hole with lots of 'Geordie Shore' types. You have to know where to go."
"A variety of shops and restaurants. Historical places to see on the quayside. There are a lot of good bars and clubs with all genres of music."
"Loads of bars/restaurants and clubs to choose from as well as the theatre, cinema and bowling on your doorstep."
"A lot of bars. Pubs are also available if one prefers a quieter atmosphere and isn't aiming to get completely drunk."
