Barras Bridge
Newcastle upon Tyne, NE2 4PT

The Great North Museum sells itself as “the world under one roof”, and it’s easy to see why. The dramatic entrance hall is decorated from floor to ceiling with animals and birds ranging from elephants to multi-coloured fish in aquariums, a graphic illustration of the wonder and diversity of the animal kingdom.
