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. There are plenty of contemporary attractions, too, such as the restaurants, lounges, and apartments of Quayside. Across the Tyne, the neighboring 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 center 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

Cross the Tyne

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

Take the Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnel

With the longest wooden escalators in Europe, the Grade II–listed Tyne Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnel 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.

Watch a show at the Theatre Royal

Opened in 1837, the Theatre Royal on Grey Street is considered one of the finest theaters in Britain. The intricate friezes, period light fixtures, 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

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.

Electric East (Southeast Asian)

For a taste of Southeast Asia, head for this bright, colorful, and fun Vietnamese, Thai, and Cambodian restaurant. Once you see the auto-rickshaw outside, you’ll know you’ve come to the right place for an inventive take on a range of traditional dishes, from Vietnamese shaking beef to tom yum soup.

The Broad Chare (Gastropub)

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