Welcome to Newcastle
Well-known as one of the most industrious and thriving cities of the North, Newcastle Upon Tyne is fast becoming one of the most sought-after venue locations in the UK. It’s packed with cutting-edge, contemporary architecture and classical buildings straight out of the pages of its rich history. The shopaholic is presented with a plethora of arenas for the modern shopper such as Eldon Square Shopping Centre, The Central Arcade and Granger Market.
Buzzing nightlife, the warmth of the local people and the characteristic lilt of a Geordie accent are naturally attractive and most commonly associated with the Tyneside town. But there’s so much more on offer within the area that was once dominated by industrial hum of turbines and the crash and clatter of coal mines. The development of Newcastle University (listed as one of the world’s finest educational institutions) has given rise to gentrification and redevelopment on an impressive scale, whilst the infamous Newcastle United at St James’ Park brings visitors flocking from all over the world.
Tyne Bridge is perhaps the most iconic moniker linked to Newcastle Upon Tyne – contemporary, futuristic signs that are symbolic of how far the city has come. Nearby the Angel Of The North and Hadrian’s Wall join a host of much-loved landmarks widely associated with the city. Transport links are excellent – with an international airport just 6 miles away and extensive rail links south to the capital, midlands and Manchester and north to Edinburgh and Glasgow.
