About the UK ::: North-East
The North East is one of the most welcoming parts of England. It is almost one of the most transformed parts of the country, as it has had to change and grow with the decline of the heavy industries, which were once it’s lifeblood.
This is shown nowhere more than in its regional capital, Newcastle. Once in the forefront of 19th century industrial innovation, now the city is very much the paragon of technical innovation, leisure and culture. Wander down to the transformed waterfront, the Quayside, now lined with stylish hotels, designer bars, restaurants and public art. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, a work of art itself, arches across the Tyne to link the City to Gateshead Quays and the Baltic Centre of Contemporary art. Newcastle and the North East are truly changing and energetic places to be.
