This bustling university city in north-east England was a major shipbuilding city and played a key role during the Industrial Revolution. Its many pubs and clubs make it one of the liveliest places for nightlife in England.
Newcastle Castle gives the city its name, but its heart during the industrial era was always Quayside, which now houses a modern centre for arts and culture. The Tyne Bridge has a unique design and connects the city to Gateshead. Hadrian’s Wall is a defensive wall built during the time of the Roman Empire. Newcastle Cathedral is a stunning example of medieval architecture. Visiting the lively alternative districts of Ouseburn and Jesmond is an experience not to be missed if you visit Newcastle. Just outside the city in Northumberland National Park, you can see the stars in the Dark-Sky Preserve, an area that restricts artificial light pollution. The Northumberland coast is also home to some of the best beaches in Britain.
