Newcastle has a large out of town shopping centre called the Metro Centre. An entertainment and shopping adventure on a massive site. It is one of the largest centres of this kind in England.

That explains why my dad once spent half an hour driving around Newcastle looking for the Metro Centre and couldn't find it!

It may sound a bit anally retentive, but the Gateshead Metrocentre is in Gateshead. It's also s**t and full of kiddies in Kappa tracksuits asking "Here man you proper radgie, lend us fifty pence for me bus fare or I'll proper dust yer." Everywhere has its variations, we like to call them chavas (char-vas.) They also call each other that as well to insult each other which is pretty f*****g ridiculous.

Here is a lovely site I found sometime ago which details the very specific (non-Geordie) and ridiculous language of these idiots:
Most folk (who aren't from the North-East) probably don't believe that people like this exist but, sadly, they do. Apart from these cretins, Newcastle's a lovely place full of nice people who like a laugh.
All the best,
