coo***anThe hotel booked on Ctrip is near the world-famous Gateshead Millennium Bridge. It is a pedestrian and bicycle opening and closing bridge on the Tyne River in England, England. It is a tilted bridge and is the world The first and only pendulum bridge is designed for pedestrians and cyclists. It connects the Gateshead Wharf Arts District on the South Bank to the docklands of Newcastle upon Tyne on the North Bank. In 2002, he won the authoritative Stirling Architectural Design Award in the construction industry! This bridge is sometimes called the "Blink Bridge". The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is slightly shorter than the adjacent Tyne Bridge and is the 16th tallest building in Newcastle upon Tyne.
ken_travelfree. From Durham Railway Station, you can walk to here, not far, the scenery along the way is also good. Along the Weir River and see the wild growth of the plants by the river, you need to know that it was brought back from the foothills of the Indian side of the Himalayas by the order of the Queen of England. Have you seen this small weir in the Weir River? Every year in July and August, salmon and trout come from the sea to lay their eggs upstream from the sea across this weir. Maybe you said, why is the water so mixed here? Yes, it is mixed but odorless, it is actually a safe vegetable oil discharge. The church stands on a peninsula surrounded by River Wear on three sides, also for reasons of ease of defense and difficulty of attack.
The most fun thing about the church is that you can take pictures! Can take pictures! There is no warning sign prohibiting photography anywhere in the church! There is even a clear text reminder that you are welcome to take pictures! For this reason, I also specifically consulted the priest here. He said a lot, but in general, it is only this year that the prohibition of taking pictures is only available this year, but I still hope that visitors will be conscious and not affect other activities such as prayers or take pictures.
Churches will ring the bell, the older the church, the more so, but who knows when the church bell will ring? The church will strike at 1 quarter of an hour, half an hour, three quarters of an hour, and the whole hour, and tones 1, 2, 3, and 4 respectively; in addition, it will strike the whole point with another tone on the whole hour. How did that sound? Is it smart? Someone is actually responsible! The bell is located at the top of the church. Three ropes hang from there. The bell-ringer will ring it every time it is time to tell the time. But this is a secret. You are not allowed to watch the church!
The church has a long history, and of course there is no shortage of historical legends. There are stories about Cuthbert, the cause of the church’s creation. There are stories about Vikings plundering wealth and attacking here. There is also a king who tried to plunder treasure and destroy Cuthbert, and Hitler once wanted to blow up here but was saved by layers of clouds. These gimmicks, let's check these by yourself.
300***74Drive north from Durham to Newcastle. Compared to Durham Village, Newcastle is a big city. At Durham Railway Station, I also saw a few students going to Newcastle for dinner. The train arrived in about ten minutes. Here I actually saw the city wall, Hadrian’s Great Wall. In fact, this is the northernmost border of the British province of the Roman Empire. There are similarities and similarities with the Chinese city wall. They both defend against the invasion of the North. Along the Tyne River from west to east is the entrance to the sea. In those days, the King of England built some castles here, consisting of a main building with a wooden spire and an earthen outer wall. New castle is the source of the name of Newcastle.
ken_travelIt's a big park, only a little bit. There are lakes, animals, play areas, and even a small garden in the park. This is the first time I have seen it in a British park. The play area is divided into two blocks according to the difficulty of the challenge. There are many facilities, from 2 to 18 years old. Seeing a five- or six-year-old child climbing a boom on a rotating cylinder-like facility (Figure 12), foreign mothers all said, "He is like a monkey!"
300***74The day of arrival in Durham coincided with July 13th, and the driver of the car arriving at Durham from Newcastle Airport said that during the festival today, the car had to take a detour. I thought this festival was just a holiday and many shops were closed. We put things down in the dormitory and then went to the city for dinner. Walking on the road for many years, we sincerely sigh that Durham is really a quiet town, with white curtains of houses facing the street and decorative objects on the windows. Suddenly there was a noise in front of it, growing louder. It turned out to be the Miners' Day today. Lines of parade crowds played music and walked neatly on the road. There are old people and young children in the team, looking at the small figure, looking serious, it is really cute. There were people pushing strollers behind the procession, and even tourists carrying luggage followed the parade with the atmosphere of celebration.
coo***anThe ancient castle with a long history is now used as the school building of Durham University, which makes the students of Durham University enviable. Unfortunately, it was not open on the day of the visit, so I had to take two photos at the door.
Window shopping at Gateshead, near the Famous Gateshead Bridge. The city is walkable and has cafes and coffee shops so you can relax as you decide what you just "must" go back and purchase. Worth a visit, especially if you are an art lover. #happynewyear
The famous bridge in Newcastle to Gateshead in Great Britain. It is so interesting to see the structural architecture and beauty of what is a necessary and useful part of the city. Art can be found in engineering. #happynewyear
Sunsets in the countryside near Blaydon-on-Tyre in Great Britian. The say here "Red sky at night, Shepard's delight". So tommorow the Shepard's should be very happy. This area is off the tourist path but is worth a visit especially if you like to take easy hikes. #merrychristmas
