United by seven bridges across a spectacular riverscape, Newcastle (a city on the north bank of the River Tyne) and Gateshead (a town on the south bank) form a single, diverse and extremely vibrant visitor destination.
With so many different areas each offering new sights, sounds and experiences, you’ll be amazed at how much is on offer whatever your tastes. World-class culture, vibrant nightlife, award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture are linked here, as nowhere else, by the famous Geordie spirit.
Football is one of Newcastle and Gateshead’s greatest passions, so it’s no surprise that St. James’ Park is a mecca for soccer fans. With an atmosphere that is second to none on a match day, with cheers and chants ringing out across the city, a day out at St. James’ Park is a must for any footie lover.
It wouldn’t be a visit to Newcastle without catching a glimpse of the castle to which Newcastle owes its name. Newcastle Castle and Keep dates back to 1178 and is one of the finest examples of Norman stone in Britain. Hop on a city tour to take you to the Keep and allow you access to its turrets where you can admire magnificent views across the city.
Don’t miss the iconic Angel of the North. Constructed using weather-resistant steel and standing 20 meters high this legendary Northern giant is said to signify the transition from an industrial to an information age and has long dominated the Gateshead skyline, becoming an awe-inspiring symbol of North East pride and culture. Why not spoil yourself and combine this with a shopping trip to the ultimate shopping experience at the Metro Centre, Gateshead.
For those who like a tipple, Newcastle is becoming the go-to place for independent brewers with breweries, micro pubs and tap houses. Head into the city and you’ll find one to just right for you!
Tired feet? Why not hop onto a sightseeing cruise with River Escapes and experience the North’s great cities from the River Tyne. Sail past renowned landmarks such as the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the Tyne Bridge, the Sage and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art whilst enjoying a relaxing drink.
Whether you’re a history buff, a sports fan or prefer to indulge in a little retail therapy, Newcastle has it all!
