The largest city in the north east, Newcastle is famed for its rowdy nightlife and love of football. Having undergone substantial redevelopment in recent years, Newcastle is shaking off its out-dated reputation as run-down and industrial and has emerged as a lively, modern city.

Newcastle’s most well-known area is the Quayside – due to both its array of unusual bridges that span the river and its dynamic bar and restaurant scene.

The modern art icon of the north-east – the Angel of the North, a 20m high metal statue, which symbolises both the industrial past of the area and the current period of regeneration – can be seen just south of the city.
