Newcastle city breaks
Newcastle is one of the most popular UK destinations for city breaks, and it’s easy to see why. A glowing city that incorporates exhilarating sport at St James’ Park, exciting shopping, historic buildings and monuments namely the Angel of the North which is just across the river in Gateshead, and food more varied than the city itself, Newcastle is the key to exciting city breaks. The Blinking Eye is a sight to see – the bridge proudly spans the Tyne and is beautiful at night.
As well as playing host to a diverse archive of history and intriguing culture Newcastle welcomes you with open arms with its ever popular nightlife. Venture into any one of the many bars and find something refreshingly different in each one, whether you get on your dancing shoes and party the night away, or fancy a quiet evening watching the world go by. With the thrills that the streets of Newcastle behold it’s easy to forget about the stunning coastline and miles of unspoilt golden sands. Take a leisurely stroll along the cliff tops or find a quiet cove in which to relax to the sound of Newcastle. There really is no place quite like it.
