Ever wanted a birds eye view of Newcastle? Now you can!

Free Quayside Abseil Line from LNER is the newest attraction as part of the Great Exhibition of the North

LNER, the new operator of the East Coast Mainline, are inviting visitors of the Great Exhibition of the North to see Newcastle like never before – dangled on a rope high up over the Quayside! The Abseil, which is being hung from a giant crane, is giving people unique views of the city and the River Tyne.

FREE to the public, the abseil line will be open for 4 weekends (Friday – Sunday) until 9th September. Simply visit the LNER Booking Terminus, located by the Quayside beach, to book your place on the day.

Whilst at the LNER Booking Terminus, visitors can hear about the new Azuma trains arriving in 2019, experience the railway in virtual reality and pick up some 30% discount vouchers for future travel.

The new experience comes as part of LNER’s support for the Great Exhibition of the North, which has also seen them bring an Azuma train to the street’s of Newcastle, run a schools competition looking at what the future of the railway looks like and put on an Innovation exhibit at the Discovery museum.
