Travel around Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Newcastle upon Tyne, usually referred to as Newcastle, is the most important city in the north-east of England. This port city is located on the banks of the River Tyne and has become renowned as a regional and national hub for culture, commerce and nightlife.
Every year tens of thousands of people visit Newcastle to sample the warm welcome of the local ‘Geordies’, as well as the chance to explore the region surrounding the city, which includes the rugged landscapes of Northumberland and the historic Roman ruin of Hadrian’s Wall.
There are strong road and rail links connecting Newcastle to the rest of the UK, and Arriva bus services cover the whole of the city, as well as journeys further afield to Berwick Upon Tweed, Alnwick and Blyth.
