The North East is bursting with attractions and is a great location for weddings. Made up of Northumberland, County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Teeside, the region boasts fantastic historical sites such as Alnwick Castle, Durham Cathedral and Lindisfarne and is also known for amazing countryside that includes Northumberland National Park. The North East is also shopper’s paradise with the MetroCentre in Gateshead – one of the largest shopping centres in Europe – and Newcastle city centre, which has several large shopping areas and flagship stores. For boutique shopping, Jesmond in Newcastle is considered the ‘Notting Hill’ of the North.
