Newcastle and Northumberland

Newcastle upon Tyne is a great place to live, work and study. The city centre is an exciting cultural hub, filled with restaurants, shops and museums. Incredible architecture and a stunning riverscape make Newcastle a well-loved tourist destination.

There's also plenty of opportunity to get out of the city and explore the wild and beautiful Northumbrian countryside, with its romantic castles and windswept beaches.

Sites of immense historical significance, such as Hadrian's Wall, Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle, are all close by.
