The scenic city of Newcastle rests on the edge of the River Tyne and acquired its name from the castle originally constructed there in 1080 A.D. by Robert II of Normandy, son of William the Conqueror. Now home to over 200,000 people, Newcastle has developed into a bustling and diverse city that attracts visitors from all over the world. As one of England's main cities, Newcastle is popular for its nightlife, art, music, sports, Geordie culture, architecture and business culture.
Whilst visiting Newcastle have a stroll along the River Tyne and check out the Tyne Bridge, both are iconic attractions in the city. Visit the oldest music shop in Newcastle at the preserved Victorian Central Arcade. Shopaholics can take a trip to Northumberland Street to find local designer boutiques and international brands. If you'd prefer to see the largest shopping and leisure complex in Europe then visit the Metro Centre, for an array of stores as well as free parking.
For a day trip out of Newcastle head about one hour south until you reach Middlesbrough. Here travellers can visit the classic Victorian landscaped Albert Park located next to Linthorpe Road, the main shopping district. The park features paved pathways, bowling greens, tennis courts, children's play area and boating lake. If you travel north Edinburgh will be the next city on your itinerary. There is lots of historical architecture here including the Edinburgh Castle, Scottish Parliament and St Giles Cathedral. It also boasts majestic green landscapes for visitors to tour and relax amongst.
The vibrant city of Liverpool is about three hours south from Newcastle and has a famous cultural heritage.
