I'm on work placement at the moment in Newcastle (Co.Down, not upon tyne) and really loving it. Haven't had a proper skate yet, just messin about flatground in the street to keep fresh, but when I do venture out (on my own most probably) I have spots like these to hit.
Newcastle have recently been given a massive facelift, with ledges and benches stretching the length of the promenade. Its nice to look at as well as being a mighty fine spot for skaters.
Newcastle also has its own indoor skatepark...in a church. Its pretty small but its cool plus its got a bad ass stained-glass-window!
