To Stay When You Visit Newcastle Upon Tyne by Arthur Townlands
Upon Tyne Featured Hotels
When it comes to where to
stay in Newcastle upon Tyne, you have a number of different options available
to you. But at the end of the day what accommodation you do select really
comes down to just how much you can afford to spend on it.
|As well as luxurious and
expensive hotels, you will also find those that offer rates at a more affordable
level. However, you also have the choice of guesthouses and bed and breakfast
accommodation as well. These are located throughout the town and below
we look at the more popular areas where you can find good quality accommodation
whilst staying in the city.
1. City Centre - This
is where a great number of the hotels are situated and are really designed
to cater for business travellers. Many of these hotels as well as offering
good accommodation offer other facilities such as conference rooms and
meetings rooms and suites.
One particular hotel, which
has recently been built and is extremely luxurious, is "The Copthorne".
This is located in the Quayside
area of the city and has gone under lots of redevelopment works in recent
years. Along with a fitness club and its own swimming pool, this hotel
offers everything that its guests would expect from any four star hotel
in the world today.
Jesmond - If you
want to be away from the bright lights of the city then you have the choice
of around 12 different hotels in this area and which is only a short drive
for the city centre. There is a wide range of hotels to choose from including
Whites Hotel that is one of the more expensive to those that offer good
accommodation at more affordable rates such as the Osborne or Grosvenor
However if you feel that
the hotels situated in Jesmond are still a little too close to the city
centre then there are plenty more available situated on its outskirts.
If you want luxury and views of the fantastic countryside that surround
the city then booking into The Marriott Gosforth Park is worth considering.
It is also ideally situated for a visit to Newcastle Racecourse and the
Northumberland Golf Club.
Certainly by staying in accommodation,
which is close to the centre of the city offers you the chance to make
the most of your visit to this very up and coming city. As you will soon
discover there is plenty that one can do and see whilst visiting this city.
However, it is a good idea
to compare the various places where to stay in Newcastle upon Tyne so that
you get exactly what you want during your visit. A little research before
hand goes along way to ensuring that you have as pleasant and enjoyable
visit to this city as possible.
Whether you are looking for
the hectic side of Newcastle's night life or would prefer somewhere quieter,
you are sure to be subject to a warm Geordie welcome when you visit Newcastle

/ Newcastle Upon Tyne Featured Hotels
Newcastle upon Tyne, and
the North-East overall, have a well-earned reputation for passionate football
fans, fine ale and a rather incomprehensible, if endearing, dialect; and
there's no doubt that these things will be in evidence on any visit to
Newcastle and Gateshead. However, with the recent installations of outstanding
public art and music venues, alongside marvels of architecture and engineering
from Victorian times to the present day, there's actually much more to
the modern Tyneside than these proud traditions.
One obvious reason to visit
is, naturally, to watch Newcastle United in action at the iconic St. James'
Park, situated right in the centre of the city. The spring's Tyne-Wear
derby against bitter rivals Sunderland, is a particular favourite for the
locals, but be prepared for feelings and emotions running high!
|A recent survey of Barclays
Premier League supporters found Newcastle fans to be by far the most dedicated
to their club, cheerfully sacrificing time with partners and families to
attend matches. Perhaps thanks to this fervent support, the 'Toon Army'
are having a great season, and if you're lucky enough to witness anything
like the ludicrous overhead bicycle-kick goal that Obafemi Martins scored
against Bolton - not to mention his flamboyant, gymnastic celebrations
- it'll have been well worth the trip. Afterwards, soak up some of the
local atmosphere, banter and brew at the much-loved Strawberry pub just
outside the Gallowgate end, which can proudly proclaim its chips to be
'the best that Sir Bobby Robson has ever tasted'.
If football leaves you cold,
or if you've been there, done that and fancy something a bit more highbrow,
there's a wealth of stimulating cultural sights and happenings just minutes
downhill from St. James' on the historic Quayside. T
he unique, curvy, glittering
outline of The Sage Gateshead, designed by Lord Foster's practice, immediately
catches the eye. Inside, visitors can watch rehearsals in practice and
join workshops, as well as international concerts covering every possible
musical genre in three performance spaces all designed for incredible acoustics.
Also in the Quays development
you'll find the huge BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, which houses a
constantly changing programme of exhibitions and activities so there's
always something fresh, and the award-winning 'Blinking Eye' Millennium
Bridge. Locals are understandably proud of the bridge with its elegant,
unusual tilting construction, and consider it superior to London's equivalent
as it opened on time and doesn't wobble! Art lovers should also check out
the Side and Laing galleries, with plenty of nearby street sculptures and
installations including the sparkling Blue Carpet Square, and the monumental,
20-metre tall public sculpture 'Angel of the North' by Antony Gormley OBE
There's just too much to
pack in to one day, but luckily, plenty of varied accommodation is available
in the 'canny toon'. At one end of the spectrum, hostels such as the Albatross
Backpacker Inn provide a cheap and very cheerful place to stay; or if you're
feeling a little more flush, then more up market accommodation is available
in places such as The
Swallow Hotel Gateshead, which has a pool, spa and sauna, and is ideally
situated right in the centre of the Newcastle-Gateshead conurbation.
The compact city centre is
crammed with entertainment, museums, shopping and nightlife, while if you
venture a little further a field in search of tranquility you'll find scenic
locations like Alnwick Castle Gardens, Northumberland National Park,
Hadrian's Wall and Holy Island, and miles of beautiful, unspoilt
coastline. Many of these destinations are accessible via the affordable
and efficient Metro service from anywhere in Newcastle, Gateshead or Sunderland.
