Your guide to Newcastle upon Tyne
Famed for its music and nightlife, Newcastle is a port city in northeast England with seven bridges connecting its city center across the wide span of the River Tyne to the city of Gateshead to the south. Its old docks are now transformed into a bustling quayside, which offers great walks on either side of the river, as well as a riot of restaurants and culture and award-winning waterfront music venue, Sage Gateshead. Some of the historic architecture you’ll encounter includes Roman forts (Hadrian’s Wall ended near here), medieval castles (including the eponymous Newcastle), and a rich shipbuilding heritage. Head to Jesmond or Quayside if you’re looking to experience the nightlife atmosphere, where the bars and dance clubs are always busy and it pays to look your best.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Newcastle upon Tyne
Being so close to the North Sea, Newcastle can get pretty chilly, so make sure you pack accordingly. Summer temperatures don’t average much above 62 degrees Fahrenheit, and it’s usually hottest in August; the winter months average a daily high of 48 degrees, but can dip as low as the mid-20s. Unless you really luck out, you can more or less bank on it raining at some point during your stay, so pack plenty of layers and a waterproof jacket to keep warm. But don’t forget to bring a smart-looking coat, too: in Newcastle people like to look good when they go leave their apartments and hit the town.
Top things to do in Newcastle upon Tyne
Angel of the North
This majestic steel statue stands 66 feet tall, with a wingspan nearly three times that size. It’s a tribute, in part, to the coal miners who worked the land beneath it for 200 years. The statue has become a symbolic welcome to the north of England.
You can’t come to Newcastle without admiring the Norman stronghold for which it was named. William the Conqueror’s son Robert built the original in the 11th century, although it was rebuilt around a century later. The views from the castle roof are the best in the city.
Gateshead Millennium Bridge
With its sleek and graceful arch across the River Tyne, this is the only bridge in the world that tilts to let boat traffic pass beneath it. You can walk or cycle across it, or stop midway and gaze at another iconic image of Newcastle in the distance, the Tyne Bridge.
