Visiting Newcastle on a shoestring budget? No problem

The pandemic is over, and we are all itching to get back out and travel. For some of us, our budgets are not quite back to pre-pandemic times, and for others the hassle of jetting off on a foreign holiday sound too much like hard work. Staycations are still hugely popular, and we predict having a super busy 2022 at Whites Hotel, Jesmond.

Some may argue that holidaying at home can be an expensive business, but we’ve done a bit of digging around to get you a list of great places to visit in Newcastle that cost, well, nothing!

As your hosts in Jesmond, Newcastle we want to make sure that all our guests are given the best advice possible to make your stay one that you will want to repeat again at some time in the future. We understand value for money is very important to you when planning a break away.

Not only are our own hotel room rates fantastic value, but the following visitor attractions are also must visit places on our list.


Walk the Newcastle Walk of Fame

The Newcastle walk of fame is a pretty recent arrival along the quayside. Many of Newcastle’s finest folk including Ant & Dec, Alan Shearer, Sir Bobby Robson have been marked with prestigious bronze plaques.

Jesmond Dene

The North East of England is very fortunate to have this facility for locals and visitors. A great place to escape into nature for a short while, the narrow wood has an abundance of wildlife and plants to discover as well as areas to enjoy a picnic.

Ouseburn Farm

A wonderful charity set up in the 1970’s, today it operates as a farm and garden area for visitors to enjoy. We are sure you will too!

The Discovery Museum

It doesn’t matter what age you are, we all love to learn and have fun at the same there, and The Discovery Museum has a wide range of permanent and temporary exhibitions for all to enjoy. Admission is free and highlights include the science maze and Play+ invent space.

There is SO much to see and do in Newcastle that is free, enjoyable, and fun. For more inspiration on where to go, always ask our friendly staff at check-in or at any time during your stay.
