Newcastle is the commercial and industrial capital of the North-East. Although the locals have always loved their home city, it’s in recent years that people have been flocking in from outside to see what all the fuss is about. The iconic Tyne bridge (a twin of the Sydney Harbour bridge) is one of 7 bridges that link the city of Newcastle to Gateshead south of the river Tyne. Along the Quayside are a plethora of restaurants, bars and clubs to choose from. On Sundays you can spend hours browsing at the market.
