About Newcastle

Over the past 10 years Newcastle has transformed itself into a first-class European city. As well as excellent shopping, superb restaurants and waterfront bars and galleries, it boasts beautiful historic architecture, museums and some unique pieces of sculpture, including the famous landmark The Angel of the North, created by Antony Gormley - which is situated just south of the city.

Originally founded by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the 11th century, today sections of his famous construction, Hadrian's Wall, can still be seen within the centre of Newcastle. Another attraction of historical significance is Castle Keep, built during the reign of Henry ll (1168-78) and now a Grade l listed building. The roof offers some fantastic views of the Quayside and city centre. 

Spanning the width of the Tyne River is the Tyne Bridge. Opened on 10th October 1928 by King George V and Queen Mary, today it is the landmark of the city.
