Newcastle-upon-Tyne is a historic busy, bustling and interesting University city to visit or work in and there seems to be ample jobs available. Plenty of places to stay, so accommodation is no problem with lots of hotels. There museums (Hancock Museum, Newcastle Museum of Antiquities, Shefton Museum of Greek Art and Archaeology, Great North Museum to open in 2009, Centre for Life-Discovery Museum), art galleries (Hatton Gallery, Laing Art Gallery, Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art), heritage centres, churches and theatres (Newcastle Theatre Royal, Live Theatre, Tyne Theatre, Peoples Theatre, Newcastle Arts Centre) to visit and it seems to have become a favourite venue for trips to night clubs and discos, though a wild nightclub was never my scene! The Baltic Arts Centre, Millennium Bridge, the giant arches of the Tyne Bridge and there is plenty of live music e.g. at the Sage Theatre and Concert Hall above the Gateshead Quays, which provide a wonderful backdrop to walking by the River Tyne. Newcastle can be readily reached by road, rail, flights and coach. There are many interesting historic sites to see not too far to travel to, particularly the Roman sites like Vindolanda and Housteads Forts and Hadrian's Wall. The Geordies (as the 'Toon' army) passionately support their Newcastle Football Club despite the ups and downs of recent years! I hope the site provides a series of pictures and images that make you want to visit the City of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. More details and links to follow. There are lots of bed and breakfast to stay at, with hostels and self-catering holiday cottages in the surrounding countryside of Northumbria and the Northumberland National Park, the Border Forest Park and Kielder Forrest water, walking and other outdoor facilities on offer. For those can afford it, lots of properties for sale or rent, but property prices for 1st or second homes are rising as everywhere else, particularly in attractive villages. South of Newcastle is the lovely city of Durham and its great Cathedral but watch out for out of the way treasures like the Saxon church at Escomb and other Roman sites like Corbridge. North of Newcastle is the wild coast of Northumbria. West is Hadrian's Wall.
