Newcastle-upon-Tyne lies at the heart of north-east England along the banks of the River Tyne. Its thriving student population gives the city an unrivalled energy and some legendary nightlife. The music scene is centred around the Metro Radio Arena or O2 Academy where big-name headliners are hosted.

Away from the student scene, the city has an achingly elegant side and among its rows of handsome Victorian and Georgian buildings you'll can linger of a beer in one of the cosy pubs, nab tickets for a performance at the Theatre Royal or dive into the Laing Art Gallery to see centuries-old British paintings.
