Arts and Culture

Newcastle is one of the most beautiful cities in the UK, with stunning architecture throughout. Most notable is Grey Street which was voted the best street in Britain by radio 4 listeners, the Quayside development and the landmark Tyne Bridge.

For a day out with a difference head to the redeveloped south bank of the River Tyne, which is home to an array of cultural venues; stroll across the award winning Millennium Bridge and discover the BALTIC art gallery and the Sage Music Centre - an international home for musical discovery.

There are also many art galleries and museums located throughout the city. The Discovery Museum is a two-minute walk from the College's Rye Hill Campus, whilst the Hancock Museum and the Laing Art Gallery are in the city centre. The Side Photographic Gallery, the Biscuit Factory and the Waygood Gallery are also worth a look. Of course no tour of Newcastle is complete without a trip to Antony Gormley's stunning Angel of the North which looks out from 65 feet high across the A1.
