Literary North East

North East England is one of the best places on earth. We have beautiful coastlines, rolling hills and verdant forests, exciting towns and buzzing cities. You might say we have it all.

As a proud North Eastener, based in Newcastle, I love shouting about the hidden gems and well-known attractions of the region.

Book and Brew regularly profiles the fantastic range of bookish things to do and places to visit in the North East. We have some stunning bookshops, prolific literary festivals – oh, and some amazing coffee shops when you need a reading hiding hole.

Look out for regular articles highlighting the best places to visit if you’re a bookworm in the North East. Click here or hit the ‘literary North East’ tab in the category list on the right for the latest news.
