Inaugurated by Queen Victoria on 29th August 1850 – a public holiday in Newcastle – Newcastle train station was the first covered train station in the world. The Grade I listed building looks very different today after undergoing redesigns and modernisations over the last few decades, but its heritage still remains. Visitors travel from all over the country, using popular routes such as Edinburgh to Newcastle, Leeds to Newcastle, Glasgow to Newcastle, Birmingham to Newcastle, and Durham to Newcastle.
Newcastle upon Tyne is the largest city in the northeast of England, and as such is one of the best places to visit in the country.

It’s littered with galleries and theatres that boast stunning Georgian architecture, giving an insight into the city’s history. The Theatre Royal is the regional home of the Royal Shakespeare Company, and as such runs programs that include West End musicals and incredible dramas. The Stand Comedy Club offers something a bit more light-hearted, and as one of the best comedy clubs in the UK, you might be lucky enough to see someone famous.

The city boasts two of the largest shopping centres in the UK: intu Metrocentre and intu Eldon Square – by far the best places to find your high street shopping, food and drink chains.

Independent stores can be found scattered across the city, selling everything from vintage clothing to antiques. Visit Grainger Town for boutique stores and designers – the Vivienne Westwood flagship store is a must-see.
