Tyne and Wear

Newcastle and Gateshead are two amazing cities, located in the north east of England, on the banks of the River Tyne, Newcastle to the north and Gateshead to the south. The River Tyne is spanned by seven bridges including the famous Tyne Bridge and Gateshead Millennium Bridge.

This location is ideal for the Great Exhibition of the North 2018 which will take place during three months in the summer of 2018. The exhibition will celebrate innovation and creativity from across the north of England.  The major exhibition hub will be located at the The Great North Museum: Hancock and important new work has been commissioned by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Sage Gateshead. There will be walking trails through the cities focusing on arts, design and innovation.

Both cities have a variety of excellent attractions, restaurants, theatres, bars, and hotels from budget to 4 star.

Access couldn’t be easier with regular trains from London’s Kings Cross Station to Newcastle taking only 3 hours. Newcastle Airport is just 5 miles from the city centre with routes from Europe, Dubai, New York and many others. The Port of Tyne also offers easy access for European visitors.
