We’ll hear tales of some of the world’s Greatest Minds: bridge builders to inventors, Roman innovators to the Newcastle Eccentrics. We’ll uncover the hidden history of the city while celebrating our message of autism and neurodiversity acceptance with each step we take. 

Led by Alexander Iles – of Iles Tours, we’ll be in good hands. A passionate historian, Alexander is also a friend of the North East Autism Society and shares our passion to see autistic people supported and celebrated in our region and beyond.
