We visited #wallingtonhall#today and took in the sights of the East and West woods. The 18th Century house doesn't open until later on this month so we walked around the lakes and ponds. The house was home to the Trevelyan, Blackett and Fenwick families and, is steeped in local history #nature#naturewalk#nationaltrust#dayoff#morpeth#northumberland

Had the biggest stew I've ever set eyes on in the @the_thirstygoat (which FYI is a great name for a pub). Explored more of #belfastireland and came across other pockets of #art and murals along the streets. One of my favourite sights so far is the clear spire on top of St. Anne's #cathedral#streetart#travellers#travelbugs

Northern Ireland, Belfast is a fascinating place. Steeped in history, not just from The Troubles, a number of areas in Belfast were under prepared for the Blitz. Many buildings were completely destroyed and replaced with 1960's concrete jungle architecture. Described as both a fantastic but frustrating place to live and work by people from Northern Ireland, there are pockets of rebellion and street art everywhere. It's clear how proud of their industrial past and history they are, represented across street art, graffiti and murals. #belfast#northernireland#streetart#mural#graffiti#peace#rebellion#architecture#travel#museums2018

My friend and I went for a walk yesterday and found the famous Shoe Tree. We stood for a while trying to understand if it was #art or something more sinister. The story goes that 'in 1627, Sheriff Babington of Heaton threw his shoes up into the Sycamore to celebrate the birth of his Grandson. The residents of Heaton have continued this tradition by throwing their shoes up into the tree, whenever they celebrate a special occasion'. #explorers#local#walk#park#Heaton#NewcastleUponTyne

Day 2 out and about in #Glasgow. The @gallery_of_modern_art was amazing, the #architecture was absolutely stunning. The Inner city #exhibition is definitely something I'd recommend visiting. Glasgow, I love you, it's so full of beauty #visitscotland#visitglasgow#culture#culturevulture#culturespotting#scotland

#Rocket has returned in all his finery. #RocketReturns to #tyneside It's also quite clever to pack yellow around the side of Rocket. When you take a picture the colour reflects making it look like the replica version. #Discovery#Museum@sciencemuseum#GETNorth2018#getnorth#exhibition

The students from the #Museum#Studies#MA programme (myself included) at #Newcastle#University are putting on an exhibition about #NorthernInnovation. It's a warm up event to the #GETNorth2018 We would love it it you could make it. The opening night is April 30th and of course there'll be free wine 🍷🍷. Taking place between King's Gate and the Armstrong Building on the campus of the University, you'll journey through the #past and see how previous #innovation has shaped #present and #future#trends.
