15 date ideas in Newcastle for under £20

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I'm not a fan of going out on the actual day as I always find it overpriced and restaurants full of couples forcing themselves to be happy :-)

Don't get me wrong, I do like to spend time with Steve and with that in mind I have found 15 ideas for a date with a difference in Newcastle that won't break the bank.
