Culture Trip 20- Bugs on Tour @Intu Metro Centre, Gateshead

I had heard rumours that these giant bugs had landed in Intu Metro Centre, Gateshead and I was intrigued to find out more.

So off me and my brother popped, to the Metro Centre to see what it was all about.

And there were giant bugs around the malls.

I am not one for creepies but to see them in such size and stature was quite something.

It was interesting to see every detail and texture of the bugs.



I won’t tell you where they are as that is all part of the adventure but there are  12 giant and extremely lifelike bugs all around the centre.


From Butterflies to grasshoppers, you can get up close and personal to see these critters, you can even text them.

Yes, that is right, you can text them to find out more about what and who they are.


If I am honest I think it is more for kids to enjoy during half term rather than adults but still, they are interesting to see.
