Flights to Newcastle

Newcastle can trace its roots back to Roman Britain, and you can still see the remains of the medieval castle that gave the city its name. The beautiful neoclassical buildings of historic Grainger Town, such as the Theatre Royal and Grey’s Monument, are evidence of Victorian prosperity. Yet there are plenty of contemporary attractions too, such as the restaurants, lounges and apartments of Quayside. Across the Tyne, the neighbouring town of Gateshead boasts Sage Gateshead, a Norman Foster-designed concert hall.

Another thing you can look forward to when you board a flight to Newcastle is meeting the locals, known affectionately as ‘Geordies’. They have a fierce civic pride that’s matched by their enthusiasm for life. They will tell you just how beautiful the broad steel arches of the Tyne Bridge can be at sundown. Or how you can easily spend a day exploring the city’s many cultural attractions, from the Great North Museum: Hancock to the Life Science Centre.

If shopping is your thing, you’re sure to find a bargain at Eldon Square, one of the largest city centre malls in the UK; or if you’d prefer to surround yourself with greenery and fresh air, Town Moor is an expansive common that’s bigger than New York’s Central Park. And don’t forget, the beaches of Northumberland and Hadrian’s Wall are nearby – if you can drag yourself away from Newcastle’s many charms, that is.

What to do in Newcastle

Watch a show at the Theatre Royal

Opened in 1837, the Theatre Royal on Grey Street is considered one of the finest theatres in Britain. The intricate friezes, period light fittings and gold leaf flourishes alone are worth the trip, but you should try to take in a show here. It’s the regional home of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre.

NE1 6BR
+44 844 811 2121

Tour The Toon

Geordies are mad about football. There’s only one team in the city – Newcastle United (also known as The Magpies and The Toon) – and young and old alike revere it. If you can’t catch a game, don’t miss the stadium tour at St James’ Park, where you’ll get a sneak peek behind the scenes.

Visit galleries and museums

Art is huge on Tyneside. While Gateshead has the imposing Angel of the North statue, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, and the Sage concert hall, Newcastle’s Ouseburn Valley has been transformed from post-industrial wasteland to a thriving creative community. It’s home to the UK’s largest art and design gallery, The Biscuit Factory, while the Seven Stories museum celebrates children’s books.

Where to eat in Newcastle

Peace and Loaf (Modern British)

You can tell just from the name that this stylish restaurant in Jesmond is going to take a fun, playful approach to food. Former MasterChef finalist Dave Coulson returned to his hometown to take charge and he uses seasonal, locally sourced ingredients to create British classics with a modern twist.

217 Jesmond Road
NE2 1LA
+44 191 281 5222

The Broad Chare (Gastropub)

Rightly proud of its ‘proper food’, this down-to-earth gastropub specialises in home-cooked English cuisine, with daily specials like corned beef pie. Head upstairs to the stripped-back dining room overlooking the ‘chare’ (meaning alley or street), which runs down to the quayside near the iconic Tyne Bridge.

House of Tides (British)

This contemporary British restaurant on Newcastle’s historic quayside is in a Grade I listed building, a former merchant’s townhouse that dates back to the 16th century. Locally born Chef Kenny Atkinson is at the helm, serving inventive, rustic food made with seasonal ingredients – the popular Craster fish pie is excellent.
