Training in Newcastle

Newcastle upon Tyne, or simply Newcastle, is a city and a metropolitan borough in the English county of Tyne and Wear. The city is located on the northern bank of the River Tyne and comprises most of the Tyneside built-up region. Newcastle is also the largest city in North East England. Newcastle sprang up around a Roman hamlet called Pons Aelius, which was later named after a fortress built in 1080 by William the Conqueror’s eldest son, Robert Curthose.

Newcastle International Airport


Newcastle International Airport is situated on the city’s northern outskirts, near Ponteland. With over five million passengers served each year, it is the biggest and busiest airport in Northeast England, as well as the second largest and busiest airport in Northern England (after Manchester). It is also the tenth-largest and fastest-growing regional airport in the United Kingdom. Newcastle Airport holds a Civil Aviation Authority Public Use Aerodrome Licence, which authorises flights for passenger transport or flying instruction.


Newcastle Central Station, one of the busiest stations in the country, serves as an important junction for the East Coast Main Line and the Cross Country Route. The station opened in August 1850 as part of the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway and the York, Newcastle and Berwick Railway. It is now a Grade I listed structure in the city’s Grainger Town neighbourhood, to the west of the Castle Keep. The station was one of only ten to receive five stars in Simon Jenkins’ Britain’s 100 Best Railway Stations.

Things to do in Newcastle


Newcastle has a rich history of theatre. For fifteen years, Stephen Kemble of the well-known Kemble family administered Newcastle’s original Theatre Royal. Stephen Kemble led several memorable seasons at the theatre. The first and largest, Newcastle Theatre Royal, located on Mosley Street, opened on 21 January 1788. It was demolished to make room for Grey Street, where it was replaced. It was designed by John and Benjamin Green and inaugurated in 1837. For almost 25 years, it has hosted a season of Royal Shakespeare Company performances, as well as touring productions of West End musicals.
