North East England is Britain's newest and most exciting discovery: a precious gem where history meets contemporary culture, and the dramatic castle-strewn coastline meets unspoiled countryside.
Newcastle, Britain’s friendliest city and the heart of the North East, is a vibrant culture hub displaying the best the region has to offer in art, music, theatre and shopping. As night falls our great city comes alive: famed for its nightlife, Newcastle never disappoints. Neighbouring Northumberland is home to more castles than any other English county and its rich history stretches back to the Roman Empire: Hadrian's Wall and all its fortifications, dating from AD 120, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Just south of this stunning landscape lies Durham, a quaint university town whose breath-taking cathedral has often been described as England’s finest.
So whether you come for history, culture, unparalleled natural beauty or simply to party, get ready for a warm and hearty welcome to North East England.
