Flights to Newcastle

Discover historic castles and long beaches

History and modern architecture go hand in hand in Newcastle. Book flights to Newcastle and visit The Sage Gateshead, a futuristic concert hall, and The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

Modern bridges and gigantic shopping centres

Newcastle is a wonderful city for shopping. Visit the enormous Eldon Square shopping centre or splash the cash in Europe’s largest shopping mall: the Metrocentre. Prefer more traditional surroundings? The Grainger Market, in the city centre, is a nice indoor market full of small-scale boutiques. The River Tyne traverses the city and out of the seven bridges that traverse it the Millennium Bridge is the most impressive. Take a stroll over this lovely bridge in the evening and enjoy the colourful lighting. Newcastle is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in England. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Newcastle now!

Roman walls and trendy nightclubs

Anyone who loves historical attractions will not be disappointed by Newcastle. Visit Hadrian’s Wall, dating back to Roman times, the remains of which are spread all around the city. The Castle Keep is another interesting place: the castle tower provides splendid views over the river. Fancy an evening out? Posada is Newcastle’s oldest pub and well worth a visit. Most venues can be found along the Quayside, however, where dozens of restaurants, bars and clubs provide almost unlimited choice!
