Toon Times Exhibition // Discovery Museum

Wow, I just realized this post is about a trip three weeks ago...oops! I knew I had a heck of alot of photos and was behind but I didn't think I was that far behind, haha.
Anyways, after Jakes 2nd week of work (his first payday) we had planned a day trip to a nearby harbor for chips and ice cream but were rained out. Not wanting to just do nothing Jake went online and just booked a hotel at Whitley Bay on the spur of the moment. Giving me an hour to get dressed, packed and along to the bus stop!
Click here and pop over to my photography blog to read the hell that was our journey before proceeding to the rest of the post haha.


So anyways once we arrived and got the metro to Whitley Bay we went straight to check in at the hotel. After a 10minute chill and a quick change we went on the hunt for food! Alot of places were too loud and busy for my liking and we ended up just walking right the way along the promenade to Cullercoats and had a super yummy meal at the Queens Head. The rest of our evening was spent walking back, eating Deleval Ices ice cream and wasting too much money in the arcades.
Finally I guess I should get around to telling you what this post is about! On the Sunday we headed into town before our train home that afternoon and we spent sometime in one of my favorite places - The Discovery Museum. This is a collection of photos from the Toon Times exhibition that is obviously all about Newcastle United Football Club. I'll leave it at that and let you have a nosey at the photos!










My whole family are devout NUFC fans so having a partner from Bristol that coincidentally is a Newcastle fan is very lucky! There were alot of interesting things in the exhibit and lots of fun things too. If you are interested in football or Newcastle you may also be interested in this post, where I took Jake to St James Stadium for a tour on his Birthday!

    1. Yeah, I'm not a huge fan either but I like museums so it was cool to see all the super old kits and balls and stuff. Jake enjoyed it anyway which is the main thing :) Thank you!

  2. If I was a football I could see myself having some fun, but sadly I'm not, so I'll just go for a coffee and wait for you outside ;)

    1. Haha I don't like football either and I went through it at a faster pace than Jake but it was nice to see him interested and cool to look at all the old stuff from years passed.
