Newcastle, situated comfortably upon the north bank of the River Tyne, was once known for its brown ales and shipyards.
It has since evolved into a vibrant and dynamic meeting place. With two thousand years of history, Newcastle offers endless historical and cultural attractions, while remaining compact, modern and accessible.
There are events all year round in NewcastleGateshead; with music events and concerts, carnivals, festivals and performances, there’s always something going on in this vibrant city.
The Sage Gateshead is the latest addition to the burgeoning quayside area of NewcastleGateshead and this centre for music has swiftly established itself as one of the ‘must play’ venues for musicians and singers from across the globe.
The visual arts are also extremely well catered for with the likes of BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (the biggest gallery of its kind in the world) and The Laing hosting exhibitions that cater for every taste.
Close to the city centre is Leazes Park, the oldest city park in Newcastle. Be sure to visit St. James’ Park, home of the Newcastle United “Magpies” football team. Also explore the renowned Life Science Centre, Tyne Theatre & Opera House, Grey’s Monument, and if you are in Newcastle over a weekend – the Quayside Sunday Market. Newcastle also has its own small Chinatown in Stowell Street.
Newcastle remains a world-class place to visit, work and learn.
