Newcastle Gateshead and North Tyneside Holiday Brochure

A warm welcome to Newcastle Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

Our cities have never looked better. After a decade of regeneration, NewcastleGateshead is now famed for its winning combination of dynamic culture and strong heritage, while Sunderland offers a distinctive mix of a modern city and glorious coastline. And across the destination you'll find a fantastic array of museums, galleries, shopping and nightlife on offer, complemented by award-winning beaches and stunning countryside, where you can relax.

We're very proud of our history, from our ancient Roman origins through to more recent traditions of shipbuilding and mining. See the past come to life at our magnificent monuments and castles, and at our many lively and interactive museums. And there's always something exciting going on, from world-class music and art festivals to prestigious sporting events like the Great North Run.

As you approach the region by train or car, look out for the iconic Angel of the North, welcoming you with open arms. What we're most proud of, though, is our famous North East welcome – you won't find a friendlier place anywhere in the country.
