The Geordies are known for always throwing a great party, and it is no different this festive season either!

Newcastle has been named of the best places places to enjoy Christmas, and we couldn’t agree any more.

Fentimans,  North East drinks company, has been looking at various data from different cities and Newcastle makes the list at number 8 for ‘Top Festive Break Get Aways’.

What kid of data did they look at? Well, they look at various different key factors, such as how popular each city is, social media figures including use of hashtags on sites such as Instagram and even how many Christmas Markets each city had!

Fenwick Christmas Window Announced As Shaun The Sheep

They found that London had around 16 Christmas Markets, with Newcastle only having 3 in December, however, the Geordie spirit is all that is needed to have a good time here in the North East!

The famous drinks company also found that the average cost to dine in parts of Newcastle was only around £12, average hotel price of £77 and drink costs from £4.

It was another triumph for the North East, with both Sunderland and Durham also featuring in the Top 20, with Durham at 11 and Sunderland at 19.
