Learn English in Newcastle upon Tyne, a historic, iconic and modern city
Newcastle is synonymous with industry, nightlife and football but there is much more to discover in this historic city, making it a great place to learn English in the UK.
Newcastle is a friendly city with a diverse population and ‘Geordies’ have a reputation for strength and wit and the city retains deep-rooted traditions, embodied by the no-nonsense, likeable locals.
The Victorian city centre and quayside areas along the Tyne and across the river in Gateshead are highlight of the city, as well as the rejuvenated Ouseburn Valley to the east, gentrified Jesmond to the north, and, on the coast, the surf beaches of Tynemouth.
The city centre is replete with museums, exhibitions and music venues, as well as hip boutiques, fun bars and modern hotels and the city a friendly, safe and low-cost city in which more than 18 million people visit every year for its culture, sport, shopping and academic reputation.
Newcastle boasts the Angel of the North, Anthony Gormley's iconic angel statue. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge and the Tyne Bridge two iconic bridges over the River Tyne. Newcastle Castle a stone fortress, built from 1168 to 1178 and formerly a prison, with views over the city and river.
The city has a fantastic reputation for education and students can really enjoy the benefits of staying in both a lively and historical city.
