Newcastle: a beautiful city

After arriving at the port, the bus is already waiting to take you to the center. Everything is possible in Newcastle. High Bridge Street is a perfect place to shop, with many vintage shops and small boutiques. But Newcastle is more than shopping. You can walk along the river Tyne, along this river you are guaranteed to spot the famous 7 bridges. A visit to Castle Keep is definitely recommended, because at the top of this castle you have a beautiful view of the entire city.
