Handy up-to-date, post Covid guide to a popular area of the North. Does what it says on the tin.
I like.

Nice guide but misses so much

This is a nice little pocket guide to Newcastle and Northumberland. However as a native of the area I know a number of towns and therefore businesses aren’t covered which is a shame.

Printing and / or Manufacturing Error?

This book had some pages duplicated and some pages missing altogether which was disappointing. On this basis I felt the need to recommend others not to purchase in case this isn't a one-off issue.
