Flights to Newcastle

Fancy a fun filled weekend away? Of course you do. Whilst it might not be in the Mediterranean, Newcastle is a vibrant city that’s perfect for weekend breaks.

The Geordies like to party that much, that Trip Advisor actually voted them as the 10th best city in the world for a night out. This is probably thanks to their huge student body, with 2 big universities in the city – Northumbria University, and the University of Newcastle. Although Newcastle is known for it’s brilliant bar and clubs scene, it’s not all Geordie Shore types.

The University of Newcastle is regarded as one of the best in the UK, being classed as a “Russell Group” University and having one of the biggest research portfolios in Europe. Grab a slice of the action with a stroll through the Armstrong Building, which is now over 130 years old, and the Kings Hall – where they celebrate graduation. The city itself is a combination of old and new architecture, with the Tyne Bridge being one of the most recognized icons of Newcastle. The Castle Keep however, is a gate dating back to the 11th Century.

If you fancy going even further back in time, the Victoria Tunnel and the Discovery Museum are both great days out if it happens to be raining outside. Alternatively, the Theatre Royal and the Tyne Side Cinema are good for a chilled out evenings in stylish surrounds.

If you have rented a car, you can trace the Tyne River to the coastal town of Whitley Bay. The historic city of Durham is only a short drive away, as well as Hadrian’s Wall. Newcastle is a bubbling river city, with plenty of coast and country to be explored once you’ve partied a little too much.

What you need to know

The airport is 7 miles North of the city centre, and it takes 10 to 20 minutes to get there. There are frequent bus, train and metro services to and from the city centre.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the UK is always in the summer months from May to September. You can explore Hadrian’s Wall and the beaches at any time, but it’s invariably more fun when it’s sunny.
