About Newcastle Upon Tyne

Newcastle is a city and a metropolitan borough near the North Sea in North East England. It began as Pons Aelius, or Hadrian’s Bridge; a Roman fort on the River Tyne. 

In 1080, Robert Curthose, son of William the Conqueror, built a motte and bailey castle on the site, giving Newcastle its name. It was replaced with a stone keep one century later.

Newcastle Gateshead Quayside showcases some impressive feats of engineering, including Tyne Bridge; Robert Stephenson’s High Level Bridge; the Swing Bridge; and the Millenium Bridge.
