Newcastle-upon-Tyne, or simply Newcastle, is one of Britain’s most well-known cities, whose history is as vivid as its present. Fusing Victorian class and industrial tenacity, Newcastle has emerged over the ages as a city with remarkable heritage and contemporary sophistication.
There seems to be something for everyone here – fancy art galleries, where you can swirl wine and comment on the latest masterpiece on display, or enjoy a night of music at the huge concert hall, or relax at your boutique hotel, or eat to your heart’s content at one of Newcastle’s many fine restaurants. However, of these things, Newcastle is renowned for its nightlife and bars. Since Newcastle has a large student population, you will never have a shortage of local watering holes.
As for getting around, Newcastle is an easy city to navigate through. Hop into a cab, or better still, get a car rental from Newcastle Airport to get around. A list of few places you must visit includes the Victorian city centre along the Tyne, Ouseburn Valley, and Jesmond. If you enjoy driving with a view, then get into a car rental from Newcastle Airport, and make your way to the coast, for the beaches on Tynemouth.
