Newcastle Holidays Overview


Newcastle suffered the worst reputations among tourists as most simply considered to be an industrial wasteland and a city where the only things that locals knew how to do were shipbuilding and drinking. Geordies, as the people of Newcastle are called, have done quite well to transform their tarnished image and place Newcastle onto the tourist map. What was once famous for shipbuilding and bare chested locals, is now known for its scintillating nightlife, magnificent parties and a range of fine dining restaurants. Those looking for cultural sights and attractions are also drawn into the city due to its unique industriousness, resilient spirit and most importantly, its locals.

Newcastle is considered to be the starting point for all tours of the Hadrianís Wall and the Northumberland Coast. It is also known for its Geordie culture, boasts of a rich heritage that features dancing and traditional folk music and has its own dialect as well. Founded around 2000 years ago as a Roman port along the Hadrianís Wall, the city reached its peak during the Industrial Revolution. However, after a decline in heavy industry, the economy began to stagnate and the cityís fortunes dwindled. However, after going through a lean patch, the city is now known to be one of the trendiest places in the UK and is home to some of the most beautiful streets in the world. It also offers the best Georgian architectural displays in all of Europe.

Popularly termed as the hipster capital of the northeast, the city offers its tourists with a unique mix of heritage, culture and sophistication and is defined by its growing number of bars, nightclubs, art galleries, upscale hotels and beautiful concert halls. The thing that truly defines Newcastle are the eclectic Tyne bridges.
