This much-loved city first developed around the Roman settlement of Pons Aelius. It was later named “Newcastle” after the local castle built in 1080 by Robert Curthose, William the Conqueror’s eldest son. By the 14th century, the area had become an essential centre for the wool trade.
Wool was eventually replaced by coal mining hundreds of years later. The port developed during the 17th century, which was amongst the world’s largest hubs for shipbuilding. Nowadays, the city’s economy relies heavily on digital technology, retail and, of course, tourism.
During your next trip here, spend some time soaking up the history of Newcastle Castle. Afterwards, why not have a nice wander down the quayside for some fresh air? Once you’ve worked up an appetite, be sure to stop at an Afternoon Tea Newcastle establishment.
