Newcastle - a Must Visit City

By: Kris Stains

The fog on the Tyne is all mine all mine, the fog on the Tyne is all mine. If ever there was a song that helped to cement stereotypical views of a city that was it, with Paul Gascoigne belting out the song in his shell suit, things really could not get much more hip!

But the lay of land is far from foggy in Newcastle.

Newcastle nightlife is legendary, once voted in the top 10 nightspots in the world, the place is positively buzzing. The city as diversified its drinking establishments in the last ten years. No longer is it a strict choice between the Quay side and the Bigg Market, new areas of city have emerged. The area around the train station has firmly established itself as a rival for its share of the weekend wallet share.

Close by the train station is the firmly established Gay village, found in the west end of the city. Newcastle on a night out is a great experience. But Newcastle is not just about pubs and clubs; there exists a massive array of shops, restaurants and other attractions to ensure a great weekend.

Of course I have not touched upon one massive element that has defined with North East City that is the football team. St James Park as developed into one of the premier football stadia in the country and can be seen as you approach the city on the train.

As can be imagined there is a range of hotels in Newcastle to cater for the all budgets as this city continue to grows into a must visit City. But if you are looking for a little bit of luxury after a busy day shopping and before a great night out then consider staying at the Malmaison Newcastle, located in the Quayside. Or if you want spend not as much then why not consider the Jurys Inn Newcastle, located near Newcastle Chinatown and Football stadium.
