Newcastle upon Tyne, often referred to as just Newcastle, is a city located in the metropolitan borough of Tyne and Wear in the north east of England. Newcastle lies on the north bank of the River Tyne and is roughly 9 miles from the North Sea coast. The development of the seaport in the 16th century contributed to Newcastle's growth along with the shipyards that were located lower down the river towards the coast. At one time Newcastle was amongst the world's largest ship building and ship repairing centres. Modern day Newcastle's economy includes hosting many corporate headquarters, education, digital technologies, retail, tourism and other cultural centres.
Newcastle is world famous for a number of iconic brands: Newcastle Brown Ale, a brand of beer, Newcastle United Football Club, a Premier League football team and the Tyne Bridge. It is also home to the most popular half marathon, the Great North Run.
Newcastle's thriving Chinatown lies in the north-west of Grainger Town, centered on Stowell Street. A new Chinese arch, or paifang, providing a landmark entrance, was handed over to the city with a ceremony in 2005.
The UK's first biotechnology village, the "Centre for Life" is located in the city centre close to Newcastle Central railway station. The village is the first step in the City Council's plans to transform Newcastle into a science city.
London has too many buildings to be characterised by one architectural style. This is due, in part, to the varying ages of its buildings with dating back as far as the 11th century, such as The Tower of London. Many of London's large, opulent, houses and public buildings, such as the National Gallery, were constructed using Portland stone. However, different parts of the city have styles of their own. For example, the area to the west of central London is characterised by white stucco buildings. Although some do exist, few of London's surviving buildings pre-date the Great Fire of 1666. Those that do may have a trace of Roman remains or are of Tudor origins.
London is also a very green city with many parks and open spaces for inhabitants and visitors to enjoy. In central London there are a number of Royal Parks: Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park which is home to London Zoo, Green Park and St James's Park. Further out from the centre there is Greenwich Park, Bushey Park, Richmond Park and Victoria Park. Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath to the north of Regent's Park are popular spots to view the ever changing London skyline.
