Welcome to Newcastle, the vibrant capital of northeast England. A city celebrated as much for its nightlife as for its friendly Geordie welcome, Newcastle welcomes visitors with as arms as open wide as its iconic statue, the Angel of the North. Breeze through Southampton airport and fly to Newcastle in a little over an hour. It’s a great place to spend a weekend, or set off into the far reaches of northeast England.
Set on the spectacular River Tyne, you’ve got Newcastle on the north bank and Gateshead on the south bank. Together Newcastle Gateshead has culture, heritage, shopping, museums, award-winning dining, sport and that nightlight in leaps and bounds.
It’s here you’ll find more theatres per person than anywhere in the UK. Take in the regional home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, enjoy the latest shows, concerts and tributes at the Metro Radio Arena as well as The Sage Gateshead.
But if the city gets too much, just down the road you’ll find mile after mile of stunning coastline – and some of the UK's best beaches.
Flybe flies to Newcastle airport in just over an hour. Great for business, weekends and more, the airport is just 6 miles out of the city centre.
