Things To Do In Newcastle

Posted 9 Jul 2020

Newcastle is an iconic city that is renowned for its industrial heritage, popular nightlife and distinct regional 'Geordie' dialect. Newcastle has some of the best UK universities including Newcastle university and Northumbria university. 

St James Park

Football means everything to Geordies. As one of the only football stadiums positioned slap bang in the middle of the city, Newcastle quite literally revolves around football. With a capacity of 52,405 the well renowned St James’ atmosphere is a must experience when in the city. The team may not always get the result, but it's known for some of the best fans in the world!


Newcastle is lucky to have two major shopping centres. Eldon Square which is based in the city centre and Metro Centre which is a short bus journey away. Both shopping centres include all the major retailers, restaurants and much more! Whether you’re after some new clothes for a night out with your friends, home accessories to sprouse up your uni room or sporting equipment for your society - there is something for everyone. 


Everyone knows when it comes to partying, the Geordies do it best - from the well know Diamond strip to Big Market and The Gate. With multiple student nights on every day of the week there is something to choose no matter what music you’re into. Ouseborn Road in Jesmond is a student favourite area where there are plenty of  pubs, bars and restaurants you can eat, drink and socialise until late at.

Health and Wellbeing

There are lots of gyms in Newcastle to chose from including Bodyzone Fitness, Pure gym and The Gym. Some even offer a 24-hour service and the pricing won't break the bank whilst on a student budget. You’ll also be able to get a student membership at the uni gym which is located on campus. At true, we also hold a range of weekly fitness classes, so there are plenty of options to keep yourself fit!
