Experience the Convenience of Car Rental
If you drive over the iconic Tyne Bridge to get from Newcastle to its neighbour, Gateshead, don’t forget to take in the view. Just outside the city is Newcastle Arena, which attracts some of the biggest names in pop and rock to come and strut their stuff. It’s the perfect place to let your hair down, and there's plenty of parking, too. Follow the river to where it meets the sea at Tynemouth, and run around on sandy Longsands beach. With a car rental, you’re free to explore further.
Transport yourself back 2,000 years, to the time of the Romans, with a visit to Hadrian’s Wall and the ancient fort of Vindolanda – less than an hour’s drive from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Located in the beautifully wild Northumberland National Park, parking is free. Little more than an hour’s drive to the north of Newcastle-upon-Tyne is the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. Linked to the mainland by a tidal causeway, you can drive over at low tide twice a day.
