Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Holiday Guide

A picturesque cityscape, thriving arts and nightlife scene, and the famous Geordie hospitality make this one of northeast England’s best-loved cities.

Newcastle upon Tyne is an energetic city that combines striking architecture with fascinating museums, sports passion and buzzing nightlife. Newcastle sits on the north banks of the River Tyne, where its residents, nicknamed Geordies, are well known for their gregarious spirit.

Explore Newcastle’s distinct neighborhoods comfortably on foot. A good place to start is Grainger Town, the historic city center lined with graceful classical architecture. Major attractions include Grey’s Monument, the Central Arcade and Grainger Market, all located here. Stroll down elegant Grey Street to find bars, restaurants, boutiques and the Theatre Royal.

Walk a short distance west to Chinatown, where British culture meets Asian influences. Discover Asian restaurants, teahouses and spice shops. A 10-minute walk south is the Discovery Museum, where you can see a through-the-ages history of Newcastle. Nearby, learn about dinosaurs and human anatomy at the Life Science Centre

East of the city center are some of Newcastle’s best museums and galleries. Admire art expositions at the Laing Art Gallery and the Biscuit Factory. Enjoy hands-on fun at the Seven Stories children’s museum. Don’t miss the Great North Museum: Hancock in the university district north of the city. 

Architectural treasures exist throughout Newcastle. Visit 900-year-old St. Nicholas Cathedral and the Castle Keep, one of England’s finest examples of a Norman-era fortress. Alternatively, witness the passionate fans of Newcastle United soccer club at St. James’ Park, which towers over the city center.

Experience the much-loved Geordie hospitality while enjoying the city’s nightlife. The boisterous pubs of Bigg Market are popular for bachelor parties. Quayside offers stylish bars with superb river views and great people-watching opportunities. Investigate the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, which crosses the river to neighboring Gateshead

Access Newcastle via intercity trains and buses from all over Great Britain. When arriving from the south, look for the huge Angel of the North statue. Whatever the season, including the notoriously cold winter, Newcastle remains full of vitality and excitement. It’s also on the doorstep of great North England attractions such as Hadrian’s Wall Path and Whitley Bay.
