Officially named “Newcastle upon Tyne” for its location just north of the River Tyne, and originally known as the county town of Northumberland, this jewel of the northeast is one of England’s largest cities. The City is regarded as the capital of the region and with good reason. Set against the north bank of the Tyne, the city hosts a total of seven city bridges, the most famous of which is arguably the suspension bridge that carries the A1 into the city. Driving into Newcastle you’ll undoubtedly notice the famous Angel of the North statue, which sets a bold precedent for the city’s historic and cultural heritage. The fully preserved, 19th century Victoria Tunnels, which were originally used to carry coal, but were later used as WW2 air-raid shelters, offer a fascinating descent into the city’s history, and there are a number of other historic buildings, castles and museums to explore for the culturally curious.
Of course, for football fans, St James’ Park, the home of Newcastle United, offers something of a pilgrimage opportunity and if you really want to immerse yourselves in the team, there are tours of the ground available. Other tours available in the city, besides the usual city sightseeing tours, include historical walking tours and even more sinister ‘gory’ walking tours, which explore the city’s more notorious (sometimes literal) haunts.
Just outside the city, you’ll find the sandy beaches of Whitley Bay and Tynemouth and the city acts as a perfect gateway to Sunderland and the northeast as a whole, so what are you waiting for?

Minibus Hire Newcastle
If you’re travelling to or from Newcastle in groups of 30 or less, a minibus might be a more convenient and cost-effective option than a coach. Minibus hire is perfect for groups who wish to see more of the city by bus, as the more compact size means there are places in the city they will be able to take you that a coach would struggle to reach. This is particularly true of Newcastle, which is built on a number of rather steep hills. The minibuses offered by our operators can stretch to any budget, from luxury to standard and anywhere in between.
To hire a minibus from one of our trusted operators, simply input your travel requirements (date, time, party size and the nature of your trip) and our team will put you in touch with up to four operators waiting to put your trip into motion. In our obligation-free quotations, you’ll receive a full pricing breakdown, full specs and images of the vehicle (or vehicles) you’ll be hiring. We guarantee you the best prices and our service is completely free.
