The college town of Newcastle
Newcastle, which is actually an abbreviation of Newcastle upon Tyne because it lies on the River Tyne, is a city of over 270,000 people in north-east England.
The origin of the city lies in a castle built in 1080; later it became one of the most important wool trading centers in the country and then a coal mining area. Today, the city is considered an important economic and cultural center and has gained a good reputation, especially in relation to its nightlife.
Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Newcastle has a slightly milder climate than similarly situated cities and, due to its proximity to the North Pennines, rain is relatively rare. The city still has features from the Middle Ages, some of which can only be explored on foot. Otherwise, the recently restored centre, named Grainger Town after its builder, is neoclassical in style and dates from the 19th century. Many parks and green spaces are also part of the cityscape. In April 2007, Newcastle was even voted “Best City in the North” by readers of the Daily Telegraph, beating other large cities such as Liverpool and Manchester.
On the Tyne River, on the other side of which lies the city of Gateshead, there is a lot of public life, because there have been many office buildings, squares, bars and restaurants here for some time. Together with Gateshead, Newcastle forms the cultural center of north-east England with this quayside and its connecting bridges such as the Tyne Bridge over the Tyne River. For shopping there is Eldon Square Shopping Centre, which is the city’s largest shopping centre, but there are also plenty of other shops such as Northumberland Street in the city centre.
As already mentioned, Newcastle is notorious for its nightlife. Especially bachelorette and bachelorette parties (“stag and hen parties”) often take place here. Newcastle was in the top ten nightlife locations by BBC News in 2007 and The Rough Guide to Britain even named it the number one tourist attraction in Britain. But also cultural sights are not neglected; there’s the venerable Theater Royal on Gray Street, which has been home to the Royal Shakespeare Company and West End Musicals for over 25 years. Festivals and fairs also take place throughout the year, as do music and art events. Culture enthusiasts can also visit one of the numerous galleries or one of the museums.
