About Newcastle upon Tyne
Newcastle, officially called Newcastle upon Tyne, is a city in North East England and metropolitan borough of Tyne and Wear, being situated on the north bank of the River Tyne. It gets its name from the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, the eldest son of William the Conqueror. Over the years, the city grew as an important centre for the whool trade and later became a major coal mining area. Among its best known icons, there is Newcastle Brown Ale, a leading brand of beer, Newcastle United F.C., a Premier League team, and the Tyne Bridge, as well as the fact that it has hosted the Great North Run, considered being one of the world's most popular half marathons, since it first started, in 1981.
Newcastle is a rich historic city with a wonderful, dramatic landscape, being surrounded by some of the most beautiful and unique countryside and coastal stretches in the United Kingdom. The historic heart of the city is the the Grainger Town area, featuring some of the city's finest buildings and streets, including Theatre Royal, Grainger Market, Clayton Street and Grey Street, also housing Grey's Monument, which stands beside Monument Metro Station, designed and built by Edward Hodges Baily and Benjamin Green, a Grade I listed monument to Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey, known as Viscount Howick, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 22 November 1830 to 16 July 1834.
