Testimonials

“the hipster capital of the northeast, a cool urban centre that knows how to take care of itself and anyone else who comes to visit with an unexpected mix of culture, heritage and sophistication, best exemplified not just by its excellent new art galleries and magnificent concert hall, but by its growing number of fine restaurants, choice hotels and interesting bars
Lonely Planet Great Britain guidebook listing for Newcastle upon Tyne (published May 2011)

“NewcastleGateshead is a remarkable monument to urban tenacity and how you just can’t keep a good city down. Having lost the mines, shipyards and steelworks that helped power England ahead in the industrial revolution, NewcastleGateshead has now reinvented itself as a centre for high-tech manufacturing, the arts and, of course, tourism – a thriving industry that is the envy of other European cities.”  
Independent on Sunday, 14 March 2010
