Considered the North East's capital city, Newcastle has been transformed from a centre of industry and commerce to one of the country's modern hubs for culture and nightlife.  This transformation came at a time when Newcastle's shipbuilding and coal industries declined.  The city retains much of its old charm, and you’ll find yourself lost in its fascinating history and culture
