The Geordie city that is Newcastle upon Tyne is located in the county of Northumberland. Known as the home of brown ale, pease pudding and the Beamish living museum, it is one of the most unique locations for a UK staycation. You can book your hotel in Newcastle throughout the year. If you are planning your holiday trip around a Newcastle United F.C home game or an off-season music concert, check the Opodo search engine to book cheap hotels around the stadium. Book a hotel in the city centre if you wish to combine visits to the iconic monuments with a pleasant walk through the cobbled streets of this city. The metro system has regular stops that will get you from one place to the next if you prefer not to walk. Walkers can enjoy crossing all seven of the city's bridges and with many cheap hotels and hotel deals to be found via Opodo, you'll not have to go far - all are within one mile of each other. If your trip coincides with a Newcastle United home game, a trip to St James Park stadium is a must. For some quiet time, drive out to Jesmond for a more rural and rustic setting. By utilising the Opodo search engine you can easily filter by locations you prefer, the number of adults and children travelling with you along with rooms needed for a comfortable stay.
From your hotel in Newcastle, take a short walk to Grey Street to see Grey's monument, which was built in 1883 in honour of the 2nd Earl Grey. Sip a cup of Earl Grey tea at one of the many tea shops found around the monument before exploring the beautiful streets. Visit the Newcastle Castle and museum at Castle Garth, one of the oldest buildings in the country. The Great North Museum, Hancock, houses the Hadrian's Wall collection and is a must-see. A 15-minute walk from the metro stop at West Jesmond will transport you to Armstrong Bridge's arts and crafts and food market along with local festivals and outdoor plays and shows held at the Jesmond Dene. All this is situated within close proximity of the city centre. The woodlands and waterfalls of Jesmond Dene follow the course of the Ouseburn river and the scenery is not to be missed. Back in the city, attend a show at the Theatre Royal, a historic building whose architecture is as fascinating as the performance you will see. If you intend to sample the Newcastle nightlife, head on over to Bigg Market to dance or visit one of the local pubs.
