'It's grim up North' goes the song of the same name. Rubbish! It's brilliant up here!!
We are hardened to the cold....
‘-10°? Might have to pop a jumper on.’ You develop a skin thicker than thick when you brave the Northern winter...It might actually be against the law to wear a coat or jacket for a night out in Newcastle....hehehe
Chips and Gravy!!
Anything and gravy in fact....
Everyone is friendlier up North!
Northerners are always happy to help, you need never fear asking for directions in the North. If you get a flat tyre, not only will someone help you put the spare wheel on, they’ll also change your oil, top up your wiper fluid...hehehe
Newcastle Brown Ale.
‘Newkie Brown’ - the brown ale that originated in Newcastle...It's the best-selling imported beer in America
There’s a reason Wuthering Heights wasn’t set down south...The dales, the moors, the Lake District, so full of drama and power. It’s simply staggering....
The Baked Goods...
You will never find a better pie anywhere outside the North, that’s a stone cold fact. Then you’ve got all the local delicacies like Eccles cakes, congress tarts and stottie cakes. You can get them outside the North, but they’re just not as good, so what's the point?
The rent is cheap, the drinks are cheap, going out is cheap, travel is cheap, takeaways are cheap. Moving to the North could be the best financial decision you ever make.
You haven’t had a brew until you’ve had a Northern brew.... There must be just something in the water which makes tea taste better!!
