Travel

Newcastle is a city by the waterfront of the famous Tyne. There are many nightlife spots on the waterfront, but the city is quite dispersed and is therefore best navigated using the Metro system or by cab once you arrive into the main station.  Once you choose your spot though whether it be the Bigg Market or the Quayside you can navigate the nightlife easily by foot.
