Located in the north east of England, the city of Newcastle upon Tyne (usually just called Newcastle) is a lively and diverse city known for its nightlife, art, music and sport. The city is compact and friendly and is often a starting point for tours to the Northumberland coast and to Hadrian's Wall. Newcastle is becoming an increasingly popular tourist destination in part due to the city's regeneration and also due to its proximity to areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the Northumberland coastline and the Pennines.

The quayside is pedestrianised on the north side and organised city walks along the river can be found between May and November. The Tyne Bridge and Millennium Bridge, famous Newcastle landmarks, span the great River Tyne in the city centre.
