About Newcastle upon Tyne
Newcastle upon Tyne, with a population of 300,000, is the main city in the North East of England and was voted the Best City in the North. For retail therapy look no further than Eldon Square or a short trip to the Metro Centre which was the largest shopping center in Europe when it was built.
Although a city there are many green areas:
The quayside has long been a place to enjoy a night out and admire the river crossings including the Tyne Bridge and the Millenium Bridge.
There are two universities — Newcastle University and Northumbria University.
Newcastle University is now one of the UK’s leading international universities, largest for research and won the “Best University” award by The Sunday Times
Northumbria University was voted ‘Best New University’ by The Times and also won the “Most IT enabled organisation”
Newcastle is one of the first cities in the UK to have its city centre covered by wireless internet access.
Newcastle is home to a large student population with Newcastle and Northumbria Universities in the local area. There are several areas that cater to students but the most popular by far are Jesmond and Sandyford.
