Newcastle-upon-Tyne hotels come in all shapes and sizes; from 5-star and 4-star hotels for visitors on a luxury holiday, to great value, cosy B&B accommodation. A stay in one of the great hotels in Newcastle-upon-Tyne is the ideal way to see the sights of one of the most beautiful cities in northern England.
A nice place to start is the Castle Keep, the attraction that gave Newcastle its name. Located in the very centre of the city, it's a great place to visit after dropping your bags in your pick of the city's luxury hotels. Reaching right back to Roman times, the castle is a fine example of the kind of history you'll find on every corner in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
For sports fans, Newcastle is a real gem of a city, with Kingston Park Stadium, the Sports Direct Arena (still know as St. James Park to the local Geordies) and the wonderful Stadium of Light; all located in or around the city. It's the perfect place for you and your friends to take in a great game while staying in one of the many business hotels in the area. The Premiership is possibly the most famous soccer league in the world and, with two major teams based in the city, Newcastle really is a special place for a sports weekend.
For a less noisy spectacle, the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Theatre Royal always has a marvellous show on offer, with a varied calendar ranging from ballet and opera to contemporary dance and pantomime. As this is the northern base of the Royal Shakespeare Company, you could try to time your visit to coincide with some of the most professional tellings of the Bard's work and stay at one of the myriad of charming romantic hotels that Newcastle has to offer.
If shopping is your bag, Newcastle is guaranteed to satisfy your needs. After a good breakfast and a pampering session in one of the city's lush spa hotels, pay a visit to the Eldon Square Shopping Centre and spend the day in one of the United Kingdom’s largest retail centres. Make sure to call into the flagship Debenhams store, as well as one of the largest John Lewis stores in the country.
