This weekend I got the opportunity to go to the top of Grey's Monument in my hometown of Newcastle.
Grey's Monument is a beautiful, Grade I listed landmark that's smack-bang in the centre of Newcastle. Once upon a time it was open for the public to climb up the steps inside the column and go all the way to the top to enjoy the views of the city in every direction. Sadly though, throughout my liftime that hasn't been the case and the door to the monument has been closed for some time. However, it is now possible for a select few people to enjoy this great experience by booking in advance. I feel lucky to have experienced it.
