Newcastle’s nightlife has already reached legendary status, and now natives and visitors alike can enjoy a pub crawl with a difference, by following a new ‘tube’ inspired map.
The Pubstops of Newcastle map is the brainchild of John Coats, a Sheffield based maths teacher and a Leeds based printer. This clever map records every drinking hole from Ponteland to Byker and uses popular roads in the place of London Underground lines.
Each venue is listed as a stop or interchange and the tube lines follow roads, so each ‘line’ really could be motivation for a pub crawl of epic proportions.
Since the map’s creation a couple of bars may have come or gone, so 1 or 2 amendments may be required. Apart from that, Pubstops of Newcastle is pretty ‘spot on,’ displaying almost 200 pubs and bars residing in iconic city centre areas including the Bigg Market, the Diamond Strip, and the Quayside
The Pubstops of Newcastle poster would make a great addition to any home or office and is available from: www.pubstops.co.uk for only £7.45. Framed copies of the poster are also available.
