Newcastle upon Tyne is one of the UK’s most vibrant cities, offering a variety of unmissable sights and unique dining experiences you won’t find anywhere else. City breaks in Newcastle are an unforgettable adventure and offer a chance to absorb this much-loved UK hotspot.

The Sights

A city break to Newcastle would not be complete without a visit to Newcastle’s castle. This historic site is where the city gets its name - and Northerners are extremely proud of Newcastle’s rich heritage, dating back nearly 2000 years. A trip up to the rooftop of Newcastle’s Castle Keep gives visitors an unmissable vantage point, with panoramic views of the city’s famous bridges and quayside. The Old Newcastle Project’s aim is to grow awareness of this city’s fascinating history - and city breaks offer a chance to explore these wonders for yourself.

On the outskirts of Newcastle, you’ll find stunning coastal scenery and untouched rural beauty to explore, when you’re satisfied that you’ve experienced everything the city centre has to offer.

The Baltic Mill is an internationally renowned centre for contemporary art, with an ever-changing calendar that exhibits some of the world’s most exciting artists. Here you’ll find a fantastic range of contemporary exhibits, from thought-provoking installations to large-scale paintings and photographic works.

Live music lovers will be spoilt for choice in Newcastle, which has seen some of the most iconic and unforgettable performances in musical history and houses the world-renowned Sage Gateshead. From offbeat holes in the wall to reputable underground bars and venues, Newcastle offers a vast selection of live music options whatever your taste.
