You will find all places to stay listed on the official Newcastle tourist information website:

http://www.newcastlegateshead.com/Accommodation.php?

There is a search engine, so you you can narrow your results to suit.

University accommodation will not be available, I think, as term is starting.

Newcastle hostels, with reviews, are also listed here:

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

Geordie humour

by Hooverboy

People from Newcastle are known as geordies. They have a great sense of humour so don`t be offended if people have a chuckle at someones expense. Living here. Friendly people, great atmosphere and plenty to do.

Newcastle's Chinatown

by toonsarah

Newcastle’s small Chinatown centres on Stowell Street to the west of the city centre and just south of St James’ Park. Like similar areas in every city it’s a great place to come for a good-value meal, but it lacks the character of larger Chinatowns, perhaps because it is less of a residential area for Chinese families than, say, the large London Chinatown. Nevertheless it’s a good place to come to eat and for a stroll, perhaps checking out the handful of Chinese supermarkets. There’s also a striking gate as you can see in my photo, built fairly recently as part of the regeneration of this part of the city.

Directions: From the Central Station go along Westgate Road and up Bath Lane, or from the Monument walk east towards Newgate Street and up St Andrew’s Street.

Monument Mall

by steventilly

Quite a recent addition to the Newcastle shopping experience. I can't remember what was in this building before it was turned into Monument Mall, but now it's a glass roofed gallery on several floors with some good shops (and some dross ones too!). Virgin Megastore, The Gadget Shop and Millies Cookies are some of the good ones! The top floor is a food court with a variety of cafes.

St. James' Park

by barryg23

Newcastle United play at St. James Park which is located the centre of the city. We walked past the ground on our way from the University to the Discovery museum but it was very quiet. I've heard the atmosphere is great on match days but there was no game on during our visit, unfortunately.

Newcastle United have a huge following, probably the most passionate supporters in the country, though it's been a long time since they won a major trophy. Some of the great names to play for Newcastle are Jackie Milburn, Kevin Keegan, Alan Shearer and Malcolm MacDonald.

Beamish Museum

by barryg23

When I first heard the name of this museum I thought it was a museum about beer as Beamish is a popular stout in Ireland. However, this particular Beamish refers to the town near Newcastle and the Beamish Museum is a large open-air museum displaying how life was at the turn of the 20th century.

It's a very popular place with locals and tourists though it is expensive and can be difficult to get to by public transport. It's located about 10 miles north of Durham or 15 miles south-west of Newcastle. Getting here from Newcastle is quite a long trip for such a short distance. We took bus 709 from Eldon Square which leaves at 20 past the hour every hour and takes 50 minutes to get there. In summer (march 31st - 30th Oct) anyone who arrives by bus can get a discount to the park. This is not applicable in winter when admission is half price anyway as most of the attractions are closed. Admission as of Feb 2007 was 12 pounds in summer and 6 pounds in winter.

The museum is on 300 acres and consists of a welcome centre and 5 different sections - a Colliery, Manor, Town, Home Farm and Fairground . A tramway connects the 5 sections though you could walk between them. In winter only the tram runs and the town are open.

The town consists of numerous shops, homes and business from 1913. In some of these there are actors who can answer questions about what life was like at the time. Probably the most informative of these was the guy in the dentists though the Freemason guy also had some interesting information. We visited the dentist, the piano teacher, the shop, stables, tea-room, bank and the Masonic house. The pub was closed, unfortunately. The sweet shop was great too and some of the stuff on display reminded me of sweets I used to love only a few years ago (pear drops, rhubarb and custard, apple drops, etc).
