Overview Of The Port Of Newcastle

About Newcastle
Newcastle is situated in the county of Tyne and Wear, in the north-east of England in the United Kingdom.

The Centre for Life features numerous rotating exhibitions and a permanent display based on diverse aspects of human life.

The Tyne Bridge remains the defining landmark of the Newcastle skyline, best viewed from the Quayside.

The Sage Music Centre stands on the Gateshead side of the city, located at St Mary's Square, Gateshead.

Hancock Great North Museum features a large planetarium with LED displays, as well as a large scale, interactive model of Hadrian's Wall as it originally appeared.

Segedunum marks the eastern end of the 73 mile long Roman Wall constructed by the Emperor Hadrian. The display has an excavated fort, baths and museum complex, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

St James' Park is the home of Newcastle United Football Club.

The Quayside is a bustling waterfront promenade with bars, shops and bistros in a fabulous setting spanned by a series of vaulting bridges, all overlooked by the iconic Tyne Bridge.

Grey Street is lined with Georgian architecture dating back mainly from the 1830's. It runs from the base Grey's Monument down towards the River Tyne.

For shopping, head to the shopping complex in Eldon Square and browse the many side streets filled with quirky, more unusual shops.

Further afield, Durham is located within an hour of Newcastle. The city is dominated by the massive Norman castle and cathedral, built in 1072. The city has winding, cobbled lanes leading to ancient squares full of arts and craft shops, and a broad river ideal for strolling along. The centre is pedestrian only.

Alnwick is around 35 minutes north of Newcastle by train (from Central Station). The castle here is better known as the fictional Hogwarts from the Harry Potter films. The region is close to the Northumberland coast and has some great but sometimes windy beaches.

The Angel of the North, opened in 1998 has gone on to become another famous icon of the area. Standing 20m high on a hill outside the village of Low Fell, its wingspan is 54m wide.

There are lots of dining options in Newcastle, from the favourite snacks of 'saveloys' (type of sausage) and pasties, to fish and chips and the traditional Sunday roast with Yorkshire puddings.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at the port of North Shields, 8 miles from Newcastle's city centre.

Taxis run to and from the city centre, and the Metro light railway connects North Shields to the city centre (Haymarket and the Central Station).

The terminal has a couple of shops and a café bar. The nearby adjacent Royal Quays shopping outlet features a variety of shops, plus ATM facilities.
