Flights to Newcastle International Airport arrive at the busiest airport in the north-east of England and approximately six miles from the city centre which acts as a natural gateway to both Scotland and the north-east of England. 

Visitors to this cosmopolitan mix of culture, history and nightlife are welcomed with open arms by the iconic Angel of the North.  Commisioned in 1998, the Angel is perhaps the most recognisable symbol of North-East England and is referred to as one of the Seven Wonders of Britain.

Newcastle itself is a vibrant and friendly city with a heritage that spans back over 2000 years, making it an eclectic mix of the modern and historic.  At the heart of the city lies Gateshead Quays which showcases the world famous Tyneside Bridge.  After a successful period of regeneration, the Quays are now firmly established as a stunning cultural quarter complete with awe-inspiring architecture and fantastic displays of art.

Renowned for its almost unrivalled shopping and nightlife experiences, many visitors may be suprised at the rich and diverse history that is just waiting to be discovered in and around Newcastle.  In particular, a visit to Hadrian's Wall is a must for any history buff visiting the north of England.  Designated a UNESCO  World Heritage Site in 1987, Hadrian's Wall stands as one of the best preserved reminders of England's spectacular history.
