Welcome to Geordie City, Newcastle! Named for a castle built in 1080 (which, obviously, isn’t really new anymore), this riverside city sits on the northern bank of the Tyne and is known for its legendary nightlife, eponymous brown ale, fantastic student Houses Newcastle, and the Newcastle United football club. Moreover, students from around the world pack their bags and move here for universities including Northumbria University and Newcastle University, and so Newcastle uni accommodation is among the best you’ll find in Northern England.
