Newcastle Upon Tyne is a large city in Tyne and Wear with a population of well over 250,000 people. Newcastle is situated on the famous River Tyne, a 60 mile stretch of water that forms from the North Tyne and South Tyne rivers.
Newcastle is the 20th largest city in England in terms of population size and is part of the English Core Cities Group. The city has developed rapidly since the 1960's with many sections rebuilt or redesigned.
The Tyne Bridge is one of the city's most famous landmarks. The bridge is over the Tyne Gorge and connects the north bank of Newcastle to Gateshead.
The bridge was built in 1928 by Dorman Long. Another famous bridge in the area is the much more modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge which has helped integrate the Newcastle Quayside with Gateshead.
Newcastle has a prosperous Chinatown area on Stowell Street with a fantastic Chinese arch entrance that welcomes visitors. Also located in the city is the United Kingdom's very first "biotechnology village" located near to the main Newcastle Central station.
