"Newcastle" Newcastle upon Tyne by iwys

Newcastle upon Tyne Travel Guide: 831 reviews and 1,634 photos

Newcastle was the home of my paternal grandparents, but I had never been there, so I decided it was about time to make a visit. Just about wherever you travel from in England, Newcastle seems to be a long way away, and so it was a long drive to get there..

It is, of course, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and the River Tyne is very much in evidence as it flows through the heart of the city. The river is spanned by several bridges and these are the city's most recognisable landmarks.

    Great pic - Thanks. Here in "Barking Town" we have the UK's 2nd largest public artwork called "Holding Pattern" - It's 70m long x 50m wide and almost 6m high. It cost £650,000 to build and only Anthony Gormley's “Angel of the North” is bigger.
