we have a sort of museum of natural Victorian heritage in town, it remains unchanged from about 100 or so years ago, i think it's calssed as 'listed' so no changes can be made to it.
it's pretty much like a walk through of all aspects of life and culture from back then with the working class fishmongers, cobblers, watchmakers etc to fruiters, restauranters etc
well worth a look if you've got an hour or so to spare, gives you a real idea of life in the Nth East back then.
it's called Jackie White's Market, anyone will show you how to get there once you're here!
