Its spectacular setting, rich history and characteristic dialect of the local inhabitants (renowned for their desire to live life to the full, and sense of humour) contribute to the strong identity of this undisputed capital of the Northeast of England. Don’t miss the legendary Quayside, Newcastle’s artistic heart. Six different bridges (all remarkable structures) link it to Gateshead, the focus of ongoing regeneration efforts (both cultural and economic).
