Dunston was originally an independent village on the south bank of the River Tyne. It has now been absorbed into the Metropolitan Borough of Gateshead in the English county of Tyne and Wear. Much of Dunston forms part of the inner Gateshead regeneration area.
I chose Dunston as my “D” entry because it houses my beloved Metro Centre. Granted, there are some big malls in America but, wow, this place is amazing. It has its own bus station, it’s own bowling alley, and enough sparkly, poofy, tasty, smelly, shiny things you can imagine. It’s definitely one of my favorite places to go in Gateshead.
