About Newcastle

Newcastle upon Tyne is home to well over 290,000 people – making it the most populous city in the North East of England. It takes its name from a castle built in 1080 by the son of William the Conqueror. Over the centuries, it has been a major centre for trades such as wool and coal as well as being a port and shipbuilding city.

Today it’s famous for the Tyne Bridge, Newcastle United Football Club and plenty of celebrities, to name but a few things. With so much character, personality, and things to do, it’s no surprise that new builds in Newcastle are a hot commodity.

Things to do

One thing Newcastle is renowned for worldwide is its nightlife, making it a prime destination for socialites of all ages and interests. You’ll also find several theatres and music venues as well as a growing number of premium restaurants and eateries offering all kinds of cuisines.

When it comes to museums, there’s the open air Beamish Museum for an enthralling taste of times gone by or the Centre for Life for an equally exciting glimpse of the future. The Discovery Museum offers a trip into the city’s maritime history, science, and more. The city also hosts the Great North Run half marathon every year, drawing an enormous crowd of runners as it snakes through this beautiful city.

Transportation

Newcastle is home to one of the fastest growing airports in the UK, accessible via the Tyne and Wear Metro and offering flights worldwide. The Metro itself covers much of the Tyne and Wear region, including Newcastle and Sunderland, while Newcastle Central Station offers rail services on the East Coast Mainline and Cross-Country Route. Connecting with the A1, Newcastle offers easy access to Edinburgh, London, and everything in between.

Within the city itself, there are three main bus companies and two major bus stations. Newcastle has also worked hard to establish itself as a cycling city, with a major strategy in place since 1998 working to continually improve accessibility for cyclists.

Education

Newcastle has two universities, Newcastle University and Northumbria University. The former was established in 1834 and is part of the Russell Group, while the latter became a university in 1992 and has quickly earned itself an excellent reputation. The city has 18 high schools and many more primary schools. Whatever your children’s age, making their education a priority is easy.
