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

Take the Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels

With the longest wooden escalators in Europe, the Grade II-listed Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels was Britain’s first purpose-built cycle tunnel. You can also take a guided tour of the hugely popular 19th century Victoria Tunnel, a fully preserved wagonway that once transported coal from Town Moor to the Tyne. Contact the Ouseburn Trust for more details.

Cross the Tyne

Within the space of about 1km, there are seven bridges across the Tyne, connecting the city of Newcastle with the town of Gateshead. The Tyne Bridge is the symbol of the city, and was opened by King George V in 1928. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is the world’s first tilting bridge, which lifts to let river traffic through.

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.

Where to eat in Newcastle

Quilliam Brothers’ Teahouse (International)

While travelling through the hills of northern India, three brothers had a dream to bring specialty teas to Newcastle, and this teahouse in the Grade II listed Claremont Buildings is the result. With more than 60 types of tea, and a menu of sandwiches, soups and salads, this is a fine place to relax over a brew.

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.

Red House (Gastropub)

Pies might sound like a fairly standard, uninventive choice of food, but not at Red House. The impressive array of pies is handmade by a local butcher, using only meat from the Northumbria area as well as homemade stocks and pastries. You can round the meal off with proper English desserts.

Places to stay in Newcastle

Roomzzz Aparthotel Newcastle City

Occupying Friar House, a Grade II listed Georgian townhouse, this attractive aparthotel offers spacious studios, apartments and a penthouse, all with kitchen facilities, dining area and LCD TVs.

Malmaison

Newcastle’s first boutique hotel, the effortlessly cool Malmaison is located on the banks of the River Tyne. Thanks to its quayside location, the views of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge are superb. The hotel’s nautical theme is a nod to the city’s shipbuilding past; don’t miss its Brasserie restaurant and Malbar lounge.
