Roman walls and trendy dance clubs
Newcastle has a rich history. Visit Hadrian’s Wall; the remains of this Roman wall can still be found everywhere in and around the city. Castle Keep, with its castle tower that provides a beautiful view over the river, is another interesting spot. Fancy a night out on the town? Posada, Newcastle’s oldest pub, will be fun to visit. However, if you want a wider choice in entertainment, go to Quayside with its dozens of restaurants, bars and clubs.

ARTS & CULTURE
The city Newcastle upon Tyne, or more commonly referred to as Newcastle, is one of the most pleasant surprises of north-east England. The city is situated on the River Tyne and is split into 2 parts that are connected by a handful of bridges. Bent steel to granite pillars – they are all unique icons that lend the city its character.
ARTS & CULTURE
Hadrian’s Wall is the Roman version of the Great Wall of China, built along the border of England and Scotland. It was built to keep out the northern Barbarians, as this military zone was heavily disputed. Dozens of forts and bathhouses have been uncovered and restored, giving a good impression of life in Roman times.
