Beautiful Newcastle

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. Here you will find many vintage stores and small shops. But Newcastle is more than shopping. You can walk along the river Tyne and spot the famous 7 bridges. A visit to Castle Keep is definitely recommended, at the top of this castle you have a beautiful view of the entire city.
