Newcastle upon Tyne

An iconic city through-and-through, Newcastle got its name from the fortification built by the Normans in 1080, later a vital bulwark against Scottish invaders. The city's importance grew initially as a wool trading centre and subsequently as a hub for ship-building and coal-mining. Its rich industrial heritage is still evident despite evolutions into an administrative and cultural centre. The atmospheric streets mix medieval, Victorian and neo-classical buildings with striking modern developments like the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art on the quayside in Gateshead. The river is the focus for the city's bold new architecture but the locals still cling to the traditional nightlife around the Bigg Market area, with its buzzing pubs and curry houses. Football remains a passion, with Geordie pride reliant on the fortunes of the club simply known as "the Toon".
