Coast and


It’s not all about the city; unspoilt

beaches and wonderful countryside

are just a short journey by Metro.

The attractive coastal towns of

Tynemouth and Whitley Bay offer

everything from unspoilt golden

beaches to surf lessons and fish

and chips by the sea. The World

Heritage Sites of Hadrian’s Wall,

Northumberland National Park

and Durham Castle and Cathedral

are also just a short journey by

train or bus.

Art and culture

The city has numerous theatres and

art galleries, including the Theatre

Royal which hosts some of the

biggest national productions by the

Royal Shakespeare Company, the

National Theatre and Opera North.

The University campus also houses

the North East’s largest producing

theatre company – Northern Stage.

The city’s art galleries and museums

range from ancient history to

modern art, including the traditional

Laing, the refurbished Hatton on

campus and impressive BALTIC,

a converted flour mill on the banks

of the River Tyne.

About us

Why we love


Food and drink

Newcastle is a truly cosmopolitan

city and its international vibe is

reflected in the range of restaurants

and bars. You won’t need to worry

about missing food from home as

there is every chance that you can

find it here.


Grab your popcorn because

Newcastle loves the movies.

More than 20 screens in the city

centre show everything from

Hollywood blockbusters to global

art-house classics.


A multitude of music venues, such

as the Arena and O



host some of the most famous

names in rock and pop from across

the globe. Folk, classical and jazz

concerts regularly take place at

Sage Gateshead, with smaller

venues right across the city including

The Cluny and Cumberland Arms

catering for an array of independent

musical tastes.


Newcastle is a premier shopping

destination with high street names

and boutique brands available at

Eldon Square, one of the UK’s largest

city-centre malls. Combine this with

a bustling indoor market, independent

shops and a range of global food

stores all just a few minutes’ walk

from the University campus. It’s

no wonder that Newcastle is often

referred to as a ‘shoppers paradise’.


Sport is integral to Newcastle’s

identity and you can see a range

of great sport in the city including

Newcastle United Football Club,

top-flight basketball and rugby union.

Longsands Beach in nearby

Tynemouth is popular with UK

pro surfers, and athletics fans

will find a friendly welcome at

Gateshead International Stadium.


Newcastle is a vibrant city that is

loved by locals and visitors alike.

Alongside the usual clubs and bars,

options also include comedy clubs,

pop-up theatre, film screenings,

late-night cafés, poetry readings

and more. The list is endless.
