Explore the city!
The Victorian city centre and quayside areas along the Tyne and across the river in Gateshead are the highlight of the city, as well as the rejuvenated Ouseburn Valley to the east, the gentrified Jesmond to the north, and, on the coast, the surf beaches of Tynemouth.
The city centre is packed with museums, exhibitions and music venues, as well as hip boutiques, fun bars and modern hotels. The city is friendly, safe, low-cost and 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 are two iconic bridges over the River Tyne. The city also has its own Castle, a medieval keep built in the 1100’s and formerly a prison, with views over the city and river.
