Guide to Newcastle upon Tyne - your Tour of the city of Newcastle UK.

Newcastle upon Tyne, often called just Newcastle, is located in the North East of England and has a reputation as a lively city with a vibrant night life. Because of this, it is often the venue for stag and hen nights. Many bars and pubs popular with real ale drinkers, are in the area around Central Station, whereas the Jesmond area tends to cater for students and young professionals.

What to see and do in Newcastle?

Newcastle has a major arts venue, by the river Tyne - The Sage, which can be reached by crossing the Millennium Bridge from the city centre to the Gateshead side of the river. Other cultural places of interest in the city include the Laing Gallery (an art and sculpture gallery in the city) and Blackfriars, a 13th century friary, now home to craft workshops and restaurants. The Hancock Museum is a natural history museum, which is sure to delight the children, with its full sized model of a T Rex dinosaur and a life-sized African Elephant cast. Or the Life Centre may interest you on your visit: it is a Science Village with lots of hands-on activities for toddlers to adults!

Of course, many visitors come to Newcastle to watch football at the famous St James Park, home to Newcastle United. Just opposite is Newcastle's Chinatown area.

Newcastle University has an excellent reputation and attracts students from all over the world.

And of course, the shopping in the city is fabulous - try Eldon Square Shopping Centre for example.

How to get to Newcastle?

Newcastle is easily reached by train (see Newcastle Train Station) or bus (Newcastle Bus Station - Haymarket). Percy Street and the Haymarket are the hub for two bus stations as well as the Metro.
