Discover England's North-east Gem with Newcastle Vacation Rentals
Newcastle, one of north England’s best cities, is a friendly destination noted for its great food scene (home to multiple Michelin-starred restaurateurs), culture, music, sport teams, and shopping opportunities. The main attractions include architecture such as cathedrals, churches, bridges, museums and art galleries. The surrounding area is dominated by natural scenic beauty and ruins, which gives another dimension to this dynamic north-east city. With Newcastle vacation rentals, you’ll be able to explore the city’s culture and beauty at your leisure.
Getting to Newcastle
Newcastle is well connected to the rest of England and the rest of the world, with many options available to get to your Newcastle vacation home. Newcastle International Airport receives flights from all over the world and is located around 10km from the city center. Once landed, you can travel via metro to the center, or you can rent a car - which will be beneficial when visiting Newcastle’s more remote areas.
Weather in Newcastle: what to expect
Newcastle’s climate can best be described as mild. It receives less rainfall than other parts of the UK, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have to bring wet weather clothing to your Newcastle vacation rentals - it can rain at any time. Winters are generally cold and foggy, at least in the mornings, while summer is characterized by warm weather and the occasional streak of very hot days.
Newcastle and its sights
Newcastle packs a lot of sites and attractions into its relatively small size. Once you arrive at your Newcastle vacation rental, the best way to introduce yourself to the city is by taking a walk through its pleasant streets. Start in Chares, which has narrow, medieval streets and historic buildings that date back to the early 1700s. From there you’ll come to the Tyne Bridge, an impressive structure in its own right, where you can walk along the river.
Speaking of bridges, Newcastle has quite a few famous ones. Along with Tyne Bridge, the other two most famous are Swing Bridge, which, as the title suggests, swings open when boats need to pass, and Gateshead Millennium Bridge, a pedestrian bridge that also moves - this one is a tilt bridge.
Those who like to experience their history first-hand should check out the Castle, which is located within the city center and has a history that dates back to the year 1080. It’s well worth a visit for the view from the top alone, but inside you’ll also find an interesting history exhibition.
Newcastle is a city that’s crazy about its football. See what all the fuss is about with a tour of the local team’s stadium, Newcastle United’s St. James Park. You won’t find too much silverware in the trophy cabinet, but that’s never deterred the passionate local supporters. See the dressing rooms, the media briefing room, and get up close to the pitch (but don’t step on it!).
Newcastle: what to do with the kids
Newcastle rental homes aren’t just for adults - children will love a visit to this city too. The activity Curious About Newcastle, a self-guided treasure hunt, is a surefire way to get the kids interested in the city. The Discovery Museum, meanwhile, exhibits local history and scientific developments, and has interactive displays that young and old alike will love. Booking a vacation home in Newcastle is the perfect way for the entire family to enjoy the city at your own pace.
Days out from Newcastle
Those who stay in Newcastle vacation rentals don’t just get a city to explore: they can also see the excellent surrounding area. After just a short drive, you can see Antony Gormley’s ‘Angel of the North’, a modern work of art that rises 20 metres into the sky and has a breathtaking 54 metre wingspan.
Durham is another must-see attraction when visiting Newcastle. This city is just 25 minutes south of Newcastle and is home to stunning buildings - including Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral. Durham Castle is of particular interest as it’s home to the oldest student accommodation in the world - the first students stayed here way back in 1073!
For something different, visit the Beamish Open Air Museum. This fascinating museum is dedicated to the preservation of the northern way of life - so when you’re walking through the streets of this reconstructed Victorian village, it feels like it’s the early 20th century. Other parts of the museum showcase life as it was in 1825. Old fashioned transportation, such as a 1900 double decker tram and a 1925 train, are highlights.

Formerly used to transport coal to the Newcastle docks, and then during the Second World War as an air raid shelter, Victoria Tunnel is one of Newcastle's most unusual attractions. You'll need to book in advance for tours.
