“I think Newcastle is a fantastic place and it seems impossible to be bored! My favourite thing about the city is the nightlife: there are so many places to have a great night out, whether going to a music gig or for partying all night, everything is possible in Newcastle! During the day there is also plenty to do: fantastic shopping, art galleries, museums, cinemas and plenty of different restaurants to choose from. The people make the city a wonderful place as well; they are always so friendly and polite in Newcastle.”
