The city of Newcastle has been seeing something of a regeneration lately, partly due to the fact that it will host the Winter Olympics in 2012 but regardless of reasons it is increasingly becoming an interesting and appealing place for more and more tourists.
The River Tyne could be considered an attraction with many city walks along the river running from May to November. The river is of course spanned by the Tyne Bridge which is a great example of a compression arch bridge.
Then there’s also the Gateshead Millennium Bridge which is world renown for its beauty, both physical and aesthetic.
Then there are the remains of the Castle Keep, the “new castle” which gave the city its name. The original castle was built back in 1067 with parts of it being build later in the 13th century.
This area has been settled for longer than that though with the remains of the Roman fort at Segedunum being within easy reach.
The city has a historic core called Grainger Town. It is so called because it is based around the streets built by Richard Grainger in the 19th century and some of the city’s finest buildings can be found in Grainger Town.
These are of course only a few of the many sights and attractions that you can see while on your trip to Newcastle so make sure to employ our Newcastle car hire services in order to see as many of the attractions that it has to offer as possible.
