Northern England region
The first settlement in what is now Newcastle was Pons Aelius, designating the bridge across the Tyne and given the family name of the Roman Emperor Hadrian who founded it in the 2nd century AD. The population of Pons Aelius at this period was estimated at 2,000. Hadrian's Wall is still visible in parts of Newcastle, particularly along the West Road. (The course of the "Roman Wall" can also be traced eastwards to the Segedunum Roman fort in Wallsend - the wall's end). The extent of Hadrian's Wall was 117 kilometres, spanning the width of Britain; the wall incorporated Agricola's Ditch and was constructed primarily to prevent unwanted immigration from the north, not as a fighting line for a major invasion.
After the Roman withdrawal from Britain, Newcastle became part of the powerful Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, and was known throughout this period as Monkchester. After a series of conflicts with the Danes and the devastation north of the River Tyne inflicted by Odo of Bayeux after the 1080 rebellion against the Normans, Monkchester was all but destroyed. Because of its strategic position, Robert Curthose, son of William the Conqueror, erected a wooden castle there in 1080 and the town was henceforth known as Novum Castellum or New Castle.
Newcastle Upon Tyne
Newcastle has a reputation for being a fun-loving city with many bars, restaurants and nightclubs. More recently, Newcastle has become popular as a destination for Stag and Hen parties. Newcastle was in the top ten of the country's top night spots, and The Rough Guide to Britain placed Newcastle upon Tyne's nightlife as Great Britain's no. 1 tourist attraction

"Comfortable apartment, great location"
The apartment is well equipped and furnished. The bed in the main bedroom is very comfortable. The apartment is in a great location, very close to the railway station and city centre. A little bit of street noise at night but didn't disturb us. The weather was very cold but the apartment was warm and cosy, a problem with the heating was fixed promptly even though it was close to Christmas and electricians were hard to find. We parked in the Grainger Town car park next door, no problems finding a bay and used a phone app to pay.
Thanks for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
