Sunderland International Air Show is the biggest free annual air show in Europe, held near the Roker and Seaburn seafronts. It takes place over the course of two days, attracting some of the world’s best pilots. A day in Newcastle is a must when visiting the north-east so we’ll have a chance to explore and see the wonders of the North, its famous market as well as the fantastic air show.
The Holiday Inn Gosforth Park, much favoured by our clients, is an ideal base for this tour. Hotel facilities include indoor swimming pool and gym, steam room, sauna and spa bath, as well as a bar/lounge. All bedrooms are en-suite and have television, telephone and tea/coffee making facilities.
Friday From your front door to the waiting Club Class coach for the drive to Newcastle, arriving late afternoon at the Holiday Inn Gosforth Park where we have time to relax before dinner.
Saturday After breakfast we travel a short distance to Sunderland where we arrive at Roker Beach in good time to make our way to the centre of Sunderland International Air Show before the actions begin. Here we will enjoy a dazzling array of fly-pasts, stunts and aerobatics, while an equally packed ground programme will include stalls, activities, food outlets and music. After the air show we travel back to the hotel with time to relax before dinner.
Sunday This morning we enjoy a leisurely breakfast before visiting Newcastle’s famous Quayside Market. We have plenty of time to browse the stalls and look for that exclusive bargain, with a chance to obtain lunch. This afternoon we join a boat at the quayside for a fabulous ride on the River Tyne, complete with expert commentary and insight. After disembarking, the rest of the afternoon is our own to enjoy Newcastle’s City Centre. We then return to the hotel with time to relax even further before our final dinner.
Monday After breakfast we bid farewell to our hosts as we make our way home. Arriving this evening we are greeted by our awaiting taxis after an interesting long weekend.
