Having been brought up in London most of my life, and now living in Newcastle, I am keen to immerse myself into Newcastle Culture and its history. I’ve been coming to Newcastle for 20 years, yet I actually know very little about it.
I came across Triple A Food tours, which by all accounts fits the bill for more than one reason. A walking tour of Newcastle whilst being fed? Who’s going to turn that down?
Triple A Food Tours is based in the vivacious city of Newcastle, the hub of the North East! The name Triple A derives from business owner Amy Whitfield’s name, her son Archie & husband Andrew….(the three A’s) .
Working alongside some of the towns most precious eateries and restaurants, you will visits approximately 5-6 venues on a typical tour. Focusing on venues that are passionate about fresh, local and sustainable produce and above all are mad about great service! These include Six at The Baltic, La Casa at The Grainger Market, The Great British Cupcakery & Parlour, Lindsay Brothers at The Grainger Market, The Bridge Tavern, The French Quarter, Blackfriars Restaurant, Dobson & Parnell, Kaltur Highbridge Street and St Vincent.
Obviously, with Covid-19, everyone is having to adapt to a new way of normal. Both people and businesses. However, it’s great for everything to be opening up again. As long as we are sensible and adhere to the rules, we can still enjoy the beauty this city has to offer safely.
I haven’t yet been on this tour, so it’s my aim to get out of the house very soon and start to enjoy what this great city has. So for now, I thought I’d let you know about this too, it may just be your delicacy!
Triple A Food tours offer 3 tours ranging in price from £55pp to £160pp.
