Located Northeast of London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne stands by the River Tyne and is considered to be the capital of the Northeast of England. Preserving most of the buildings and streets from the Victorian Era, Newcastle-upon-Tyne is an important tourist destination that you should never miss when visiting London. Follow your guide to one of the six bridges that spans the River Tyne – the oldest, two-level steel structure that rose as high as 165 ft built in the 17th century by Robert Stephenson. The High Level Bridge is quite well-known internationally, along with the the Swing Bridge, and the Tyne Bridge that most symbolizes the city’s identity. Explore the Quayside district around Tyne and High Level bridge. The district is home to hotels, shops, and restaurants that have sprung from old Victorian houses, and it’s underground attraction, the Victoria Tunnel that runs beneath the city connecting Town Moor to Tyne. Don’t forget to visit the Castle Keep and St. Nicholas Cathedral, as well as Grey’s Monument at the north end of Grey Street which stood 135 feet high. Who knows – just like many other locals, the monument might just become your favourite meeting spot too!
