INTRODUCTION

The Newcastle Tourist Information Centre and Heritage Museum is a non-profit organisation that will provide visitors from far and wide with the information they need to know about the North East of England, especially Gateshead and Newcastle upon Tyne in particular. The up-and-coming centre for tourist facts and heritage insights has been earmarked for configuration within 3 potential Newcastle Quayside heritage buildings.

 

THE IDEA

The project’s creators plan to fully refurbish to structure to meet modern-day standards and expectations, while preserving the building’s heritage for generations to come.

Step inside the information centre, and you’ll also discover a heritage museum showcasing various articles, images, videos, and artefacts unique to North East England. Guests will embark on a tour of the mind, travelling back to a time when the industrial revolution first began to take shape. Advanced virtual reality technology takes tours even further, with a virtual “walk down memory lane” using the latest Oculus VR equipment.

 

THE COSTS

We are striving to crowdfund for the building internal fit-out costs and the Newcastle Tourist Information Centre and Heritage Museum C.I.C setup costs only as the main building refurbishment costs are on a separate fundr heritage restoration project which can be found here.

All internal fit-out and business setup costs are segregated into various critical project demands, including:

  • Architectural Drawings
  • Internal Fit-out
  • Internal Decoration
  • Tourist Info Centre Setup
  • Heritage Museum Setup
  • VR Equipment & VR Software
  • PR Services
  • Social Media Marketing
  • Service + Maintenance
  • Legal + Insurance

 

THE BOTTOM LINE

Attracting more tourists to visit Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead is within the Northern Powerhouse plans, the Newcastle Tourist Information Centre and Heritage Museum will offer tourists an in-sight into our regions past, showcase our regions great achievements and ultimately put the North East of England on the great places to visit global tourist map.
