Tyne Idols cultural heritage tours take you on a trip around some of Tyneside’s most iconic film and music sites.
Viewed from a red Routemaser double-decker bus, the tour starts and ends at Newcastle’s Central Station, taking in various sites along the way and offering gems of pop trivia such which Beatles song was penned in Grey Street.
The role of host guide is shared by local music legend, Ray Laidlaw, former drummer from Lindisfarne and TV producer Chris Phipps, producer of Tyne Tees Television’s ‘The Tube’.
Ray said: “If you’re interested in North East film, music or television then you’ll enjoy the tour.
“It’s people who are interested in the details, people who like doing quizzes and that sort of thing who like to come along.
“People who’ve always enjoyed music and like knowing a bit more of the background.
“We take the bus around, we stop at various venues, various locations. None of the information is particularly difficult to find out but if you put it all together in a package in makes for a nice trip out and also, a great way to see the city, from a double decker bus.”
Tickets for the bus tour are £15.00 (£12.00 concessionary). For more information visit the website http://tyneidols.com/index.html
