The city’s also renowned for its colourful nightlife, with trendy bars and vibrant clubs that are filled until the early hours.

Where to stay

A hotel in Newcastle’s lively centre keeps the city’s amenities and attractions close, while also providing you with a travel hub to venture further afield. The city centre is made up of districts, each offering something unique. Grainger Town is a shopping and nightlife district wrapped in neo-classical splendour, while bustling Haymarket is home to the ‘Oxford Street of the North’ – Northumberland Street. If you love city life but only in small doses, a more relaxing stay can be had in Sunderland. While also a buzzing city in its own right, Sunderland’s beaches and surrounding countryside offer tranquillity on tap.

Things to see

Of all the attractions Newcastle has to offer, football fans will want to tackle St James’ Park first – the home of Newcastle United FC. Located in the centre, the stadium hosts a museum dedicated to the club’s history. Quayside, a modern waterside development along the banks of the River Tyne, is connected by the striking Gateshead Millennium Bridge, whose arches pierce the skyline. Offering superb shopping and restaurants, plus some of Newcastle’s best nightlife, Quayside is a hub of culture and entertainment. The BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art can be found here, along with the Sage Gateshead, a glazed architectural triumph and musical performance centre. For shopping on a gargantuan scale, head to the MetroCentre in Gateshead. With over 340 shops, it’s an expansive warren of high-street shops and designer brands. Make sure that you cross the grand, green Tyne Bridge – an iconic symbol of Tyneside – during your visit too.

How to get to Newcastle-upon-Tyne

With its own airport located just 6 miles outside the city, Newcastle provides the perfect gateway to a northern adventure for visitors flying in. Offering its own station for the Tyne and Wear Metro that gets you into the city within 25 minutes, the airport is extremely popular with visitors and locals alike. Buses run between the city centre and airport, though many find the Metro more convenient. Newcastle Central Station (or just Central Station, as it’s known locally) is your call if you’re travelling by railway, with regular trains from destinations such as London and Edinburgh.
