Newcastle upon Tyne

4.1

Student City

One of the hippest urban centers in the northeastern part of the country, Newcastle upon Tyne once had a reputation for being an industrial wasteland with little to offer casual tourists. With arguably some of the best nightlife in Britain, this lively and diverse city is now renowned for its art, music, and sports. Compact and friendly, the town has reinvented itself in recent decades as one of England’s most important centers of culture, architecture, and business. The area is also home to a distinct Geordie culture, which is steeped in a rich heritage of folk music and dance. Founded over 2,000 years ago, the town is a convenient starting point for tours to the world-famous Hadrian’s Wall. Newcastle upon Tyne is in Tyne and Wear.
