Newcastle upon Tyne, which is the full name, is located by the River Tyne in the north-east of England, near the border of Scotland. The city is named after the new castle that was built here around the year 1080 which replaced an older defense facility.
Large parts of central Newcastle have retained their medieval street network, which means a lot of narrow alleys that are not wide enough for car traffic.
Walk along the Tyne Bridge, it helps to give the city its classic silhouette. It was inaugurated in 1928 and was then the host's only single-span bridge. It is a symbol of industrial history and the technological present.
A visit to the Discovery Museum is well worth it! Here you can learn more about science and the city's history. You will find the museum at Blandford Square. They are open every day - and are free!
Newcastle is named after Newcastle Castle Keep, the Norman castle built in 1080. Today the castle is gone but in the same place is Newcastle Castle Keep. The castle was completed in 1178 so it is also old. It is located in the heart of the historic quarter of Castle Garth and is open every day of the week.
The 20 meter high steel statue Angel of the North is one of the most famous sights in the north east of England. Around 33 million visitors come here every year to admire the magnificent statue, which was erected in 1998. It can be found on Durham Road in Gateshead.
It is said that the entertainment scene in Newcastle is one of England's best. Here you can have dinner with a beautiful view of the river or have a drink at a rooftop bar with a great view. In addition, you have to order a ”Newcastle” and then you get a cold beer named after the city.
There are several areas to have fun in. The Bigg Market is a hot area with many pubs and bars. There you can find Newcastle's oldest pub, The Old George, which dates from 1582. The Quayside area is located on the quay and consists of many old warehouses that have been given new life. The buildings now house top-designed bars, restaurants with outdoor cafes and really nice hotels. Feel free to end an evening here with a walk along the river.
For those interested in football, a visit to St James' Park is a must. The home arena of the Premier League team Newcastle United FC has been used as a football arena since 1880. The club was founded in 1892 through a merger of the clubs Newcastle East End FC and Newcastle West End FC. The club has since joining The Football League 1893 all the time played in one of the two highest divisions in England's league system for football!

The Premier League started on 12/9 and initially the stands will be closed. The clubs' arenas are approved for reduced capacity and when fans are welcome in the stands, it is anything from 20% -40% as it looks right now.
How does this affect you as a traveler?
You have probably read in the media that the places that are released will only go to members of the club. This is to some extent true, but we are proud to announce that GO Sport Travel, through long and very good relations with the clubs, will keep our agreements in line with the reduced capacity the clubs will soon present.
With the help of GO Sport Travel AB, you can continue to be one of those who sit in the stands and experience the Premier League live, already in October!
It is planned that each visitor needs to take certain wise measures, such as wearing a mouth guard, etc. In addition, each visitor's name will be printed on the ticket, and subsequent identity checks will take place upon arrival at the arena area.
In short, each visitor must have their ticket registered by the club. The registration is of course handled by GO Sport Travel on behalf of the visitor.
The clubs are very happy to have a high level of security in which visitors they have in place, both for themselves and the visitors. The clubs also hope that the number of less desirable ticket players will decrease. We encourage you to be observant when listening to other actors.
There may be ticket / tour operators who will convey that the above restrictions will not be required, but this is not correct information.
We look forward to announcing soon when we, together with the clubs, open the sale for the upcoming Premier League season.
