City Tour - Industry and Invention

About

Meet at Grey’s Monument.  Finish at Exchange Buildings, Newcastle Quayside.

This walk looks at the role Newcastle played as industry and innovation flourished in the 19th century.  Find out where Stephenson built locomotives, where Swan first demonstrated his electric light bulb and how Armstrong and Parsons established factories which eventually employed thousands of workers. 

The route takes a steady, but steep downhill route, which may make it difficult for people with limited mobility
