Food, fashion, music and history: Newcastle offers something for everyone
Most tours of Newcastle begin at the edge of the River Tyne, where visitors can enjoy the view and learn about the various bridges that cross over the waterway.
For example, there's the Tyne Bridge, which was built in the 1920s and features an impressive green archway of ironwork. The modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge, on the other hand, was completed in 2001 and is a not only an incredible piece of engineering, but also an intriguing piece of modern architecture.
In addition to the eclectic mix of bridges, there's also The Sage, an arts and performance venue that looks impressive on the outside and hosts a remarkable range of concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
Sightseers should be sure to explore Grainger Town, a historic district that features amazing examples of Victorian architecture and a monument to Charles Grey. Newcastle is also a popular starting point for those who want to visit Hadrian's Wall, and there are plenty of areas of natural beauty if you want to spend a day in the fresh air.
For those in need of some retail therapy, Newcastle and Gateshead offer some excellent options. Northumberland Street – sometimes known as the Oxford Street of the North – includes an array of high street stores, as well as Fenwick's flagship department store.
If you prefer to find a boutique or vintage clothing store, the Old George Yard might be a better option, while the Metrocentre is Europe's largest shopping and leisure complex.
Of course, visitors will also need to fuel up on some delicious food during their stay in Newcastle, and the city won't disappoint, with its collection of high-end eateries and cosy cafes. Osborne Road in the suburb of Jesmond has been called one of the best foodie streets in the UK, while Chinatown offers an array of Asian cuisine.
