Situated on the north bank of the River Tyne, Newcastle is a metropolitan city with a population of approximately 189,000 people.
Famed for the iconic legacies of Newcastle United F.C. and the much loved local Newcastle Brown Ale, this famous Geordie nation is a thriving city for experiencing the thrills and joys of the student high life.
Foodies and beverage fans are well catered for, with an exceptional range of modern cuisines, quick snack bars and traditional English pubs offering something for everyone. The 3 AA Rosette restaurant Hesmond Dene House promises spectacular multi-course outings, whilst Blackfriers, Fujiyama and Hanahana traverse your taste buds through more unique taste experiences.
Nightlife is amply spread across the entire city, with live music, theatres, clubs, pubs and bars all attracting some of the best acts from the world of music, comedy and the arts. Newcastle’s Digital super club is a regular haunt for up and coming DJs, whilst the Hyena Comedy Club is sure to raise a laugh of two. Student discounts can be found across a wide spectrum of modern bars, with Tiger Tiger, Livello, The Ware Rooms and House of Smith all providing affordable drinks on specific nights.
The famous sporting city is centred by the hub of St James’ Park, though less inclined student residents may prefer the fantastic range of shopping opportunities provided by Eldon Square and Gateshead’s Metrocentre (Europe’s largest indoor shopping and leisure facility), where designer fashions meet eclectic boutiques to please any fashion trend.
Historical sites such as Belsay Hall and Durnham Castle add tradition to the modern cultural excitement of art galleries and museums, whilst the range of ports, walks and city sights ensure no end to the fun and excitement of Newcastle’s dynamic city.
