From the Tyne Bridge to the Gallowgate End of St James’s Park, Newcastle has its fair share of classic landmarks and local legends.
Newcastle's sheer Geordie exuberance is not to be underestimated. The city reflects its people and its vibe - live, loud and up for a good time. Come here and discover why.
Newcastle is perfectly located for journeys across the north, north-east and Scotland. You can get here from London King’s Cross and Edinburgh (and stations further north) on East Coast services, on CrossCountry services south via Birmingham, as well as to and from Glasgow Central on First ScotRail . TransPennine manage regional services to Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Huddersfield, while Northern Rail will link you to local destinations across the north east and Cumbria.

Newcastle upon Tyne is one of the UK’s best places to go for a bigg night out - the city’s legendary Bigg Market is where it all happens at the weekend. But don’t be fooled: there’s more to life than Newcastle Brown. The city has a neoclassical centre that’s a pleasure to see on foot, some of Britain’s best bridges, and the Newcastle Mela multicultural festival every August Bank holiday. (PS There’s also a CAMRA beer festival here every April).
Head to nearby North Shields to celebrate local engineering legends and their lasting legacy. The Stephenson Railway Museum is home to George Stephenson's Billy, forerunner of the world- famous Rocket, and by many other engines from the great age of steam.
