Take a look around the City of Newcastle
The City of Newcastle Upon Tyne is the vibrant and historic centre of the the North-East of England.
The origins of Newcastle can be traced back to Roman times and the city takes its name from the Norman Castle built by the son of William the Conqueror.
Today, Newcastle is a lively and cosmopolitan city that manages to perfectly mix the very best of old and new.
Spectacular buildings, which bear testimony to the city's historic past, such as the Medieval Cathedral of St Nicholas, sit alongside modern housing, business and leisure facilities and together make Newcastle a truly fascinating and enjoyable place to explore.
Our exciting tour of Newcastle will allow you to see just how much the city has to offer in term of culture and historic places of interest, taking you to all of the sites that give Newcastle its unique appeal.
Our first stop is the newly restored Grainger Town area of Newcastle.
This area, characterised by the unique Georgian style architecture of Grey Street (recently commented upon as being the finest street in England), Clayton Street and Grainger Street, was developed in the early 19th century by Richard Grainger to designs by local architect John Dobson and is the historic heart of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Our second stop will allow you to enjoy St Nicholas' Anglican Cathedral, a magnificent building that dates mainly from the 13th and 14th centuries. Its Lantern Tower has been a prominent landmark in Newcastle for centuries and is the Cathedral's most distinguishing feature. Despite all the developments in modern building, the tower remains the most daring architectural structure in Newcastle.
As we leave the cathedral and head towards the River Tyne you will be greeted by the newly transformed Quayside, which is lined with stylish hotels, designer bars and restaurants.
While enjoying the view at Newcastle Quayside, which is home to two of the world's most famous bridges The Tyne Bridge and The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, you will also have a chance to view the latest addition to Newcastle's skyline, The Sage Gateshead.
St James' Park
No tour of Newcastle would be complete without a visit to what could be described as the spiritual home for all Geordies, St James' Park.
Our third stop will allow you to take in the spectacle of this world-famous football stadium and see the home of many famous Newcastle United players such as Jackie Millburn, Paul Gascoigne and ex-England captain Alan Shearer.
