No Fog On The Tyne
Atttaining Past Glory

Newcastle is a suprising city in many aspects. Thought of by many as a dreary industrial city in the North East of England, this much regenerated city now has much to offer for todays modern traveller.
The city was actually untill 1882 but a mere town. It got its name from the "new" castle, first built by Robert Curthose, a son of William the Conqueror. Settlements in the area however date back to Roman times.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great place to visit

    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.
