Discover the neighborhoods of Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Home of the beautiful River Tyne and world famous Gateshead Millennium Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne is one of the most picturesque tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. As it’s a centrally-located port city, travelers can arrive via train, bus, boat, or drive from most parts of the UK.
Newcastle’s most beautiful buildings and famous landmarks such as Grainger Market, Theatre Royal, and Grey Street are all located within the historic Grainger Town and city center. Hotels located in Grainger Town are therefore the perfect choice for culture and arts enthusiasts who want to be within walking distance of Newcastle’s old town and current arts scene, of which it has an impressive amount.
Of course, a couple of days of architecture and museum exploring should be balanced with some time spent in nature, and Jesmond Dene is the perfect destination for exactly that. This gorgeous city park is actually one of a large system of urban parks that snake around the city, connecting with many other parks along a two-mile walking path and eventually leading to the famous South Gosforth.
As seen in recent popular culture, Newcastle has a very lively nightlife, so one need to only venture out of their hotel to find all the fun and excitement.
