About Newcastle upon Tyne
Newcastle Upon Tyne, usually just referred to as Newcastle, is the largest city in the North East of England. Once an industrious shipbuilding capital, Newcastle is now mostly known for its exciting nightlife and bar scene; many people flock to the city annually to experience a "Geordie" night out.
During the day, however, Newcastle offers a diverse range of activities and experiences. Take a walk along the Quayside for a breath of sea air, as well as a spectacular view of the seven iconic bridges that connect the north and south banks of the River Tyne, namely the famous Tyne Bridge. Newcastle is also home to several museums to suit every interest, whether it be the Centre of Life for an exciting way to engage in science or the Discovery Museum for an insight into local history.
If you're a football fan, then a trip to Newcastle would be incomplete without a visit to St James' Park for daily guided tours to explore the long history of Newcastle United. You could even follow our itinerary to visit every Premier League Stadium in England.
Getting to Newcastle is easy, whether you wish to travel by car, train, bus, air, or sea. An international airport, an international ferry terminal, and the confluence of several major roads make it extremely easy to get to Newcastle. Central Station lies on the London North Eastern Railway, with frequent trains linking the city to both the south of England and Scotland.
