Discover historical castles and long beaches

Looking to combine a city trip with long beach walks? Book a flight to Newcastle and visit The Sage Gateshead, its futuristic concert hall, and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. Then let the wind run through your hair at the vast beaches just outside the city. Wherever you go and whatever you do in Newcastle, you’ll be pleasantly surprised in every way.

Modern bridges and huge shopping centres

Newcastle is a shoppers’ paradise. Stock up in the gigantic Eldon Square complex or flash your credit card in Metrocentre, one of the UK’s largest shopping centre. For a more authentic atmosphere there’s Grainger Market, a beautiful market hall in the city centre filled with small-scale boutiques. Traversing through the city is the River Tyne. Of the seven bridges spanning it, the Millennium Bridge is the most splendid. Colourfully lit, this bridge is worth a stroll in the evening. Not only is Newcastle the ideal destination for weekend holidays, it’s also the perfect starting point for a longer vacation in England. Treat yourself: book a flight to Newcastle now!

Roman walls and trendy dance clubs

Newcastle has a rich history. Visit Hadrian’s Wall; the remains of this Roman wall can still be found everywhere in and around the city. Castle Keep, with its castle tower that provides a beautiful view over the river, is another interesting spot. Fancy a night out on the town? Posada, Newcastle’s oldest pub, will be fun to visit. However, if you want a wider choice in entertainment, go to Quayside with its dozens of restaurants, bars and clubs.
