  • Address: Newcastle, England
  • Admission: Free

Newcastle Upon Tyne and neighboring Gateshead together constitute the major urban center of northeast England. Locals (known as ”Geordies”) are rarely shy of a drink, and weekends find the bars and pubs of the city heaving with locals and visitors from Britain and beyond.

Non-alcoholic attractions include a rich architectural legacy stretching from traces of Roman settlements through Victorian shopping arcades to the graceful arc of the award-winning Millennium Bridge.

The vast Angel of the North sculpture has quickly become a symbol of the region and the Baltic Centre, in a converted flour mill, contributes greatly to the city’s enviable reputation for contemporary art. Sage Gateshead is a must-see, whether you're there for a concert or just to admire the curving contours of its futuristic glass-and-steel exterior.

Practical Info

Newcastle is a great base for exploring the northeast of England. High-speed trains provide direct connections to most English cities as well as nearby Scotland, while the city’s airport serves mostly short-haul flights.

The Metro rail network will take you to Gateshead and any other points of interest you can’t reach on foot.
