Newcastle upon Tyne, simply referred to as Newcastle, is a city in North East England, with over 300,000 inhabitants. Newcastle is also the home town to football club Newcastle United, which have played all of their home matches in St. James’ Park ever since 1892. In the 2016-17 season, The Magpies were promoted to the Premier League after winning the Championship.
Newcastle isn’t as popular as other cities such as London, Liverpool and Manchester. It is however, a perfect city trip destination. Newcastle’s most famous attraction is Hadrian’s Wall: an impressive UNESCO World Heritage Site that stretches 80 miles (120 kilometres) from the Solway Coast up to Newcastle. The city has many more public monuments and interesting museums worth visiting. Moreover, many traditional pubs can be found in Newcastle.
