Growing up in Newcastle in the 1990s

Growing up in Newcastle in the 1990s was a lot of fun. So many things have changed since then, but it’s nice to look back and remember what it used to be like.
Below is a list of 10 things that will bring back memories if you grew up in Newcastle in the 1990s…

1. Metro Tickets were cheaper (10p for a children’s ticket but the machine would beep incessantly to check that you were eligible for the discount).
