Welcome to Newcastle-upon-Tyne's Townpage

Once a Roman station on Hadrian's Wall. It later became one of the centres of strife between Scotland and England. The keep of the castle can be seen and the 13th century Black Gate and some remains of its 14th century walls still stand. The 15th century spire of the Cathedral is of a rare design. Geographically compact, it is easy to get about the city on foot or using the Metro.

As the regional capital for the North East of England the city is a thriving centre for entertainment and culture. It supports its own orchestra, the Northern Sinfonia and has five theatres. Newcastle also enjoys a great sporting tradition proud as the locals are of their football, rugby and basketball teams. With Gateshead Stadium nearby the region also plays host to International Athletics Events and the annual Great Northern Run.

The Tyne is crossed by no less than six bridges and another Millennium Eye Bridge is currently under construction. The famous Tyne bridge was completed in 1928 when it was the largest single span bridge in the world. The city’s many museums and galleries include one on Science and Engineering and the Laing Art Gallery. Nearby attractions include the Stephenson Railway Museum at North Shields and Beamish Open Air Museum South of Gateshead.
