accommodation

by ted1

Im moving from Marseille to Newcastle to study English in August. Any tips for renting somewhere to rent. Ive been a couple of times to check the town out and I think Newcastle is great. I liked Jessmond area but Im not that fussy. Do you think it will be easy to get some work, I speak english to a high standard!! Places to go for rock music also.
Many thanks
Ted

RE: accommodation

by fizzytom

Hi, I live in Newcastle!
Accommodation in Jesmond will be fairly pricy. Nearby Heaton is a chepaer option and there are some good bars, restaurants, shops, etc because its a student area. There is a lot more part-time work avaialable these days but mainly in bars/cafes, etc. Also maybe some office work.
This is the place for rock music. Best known is Trillians - a rock/metal pub in the centre of town, busy all week but especially Friday and Saturday nights when its open till 1a.m. They also have live bands - sometimes free. The Archer in Jesmond is another pub which has live bands.
As far as clubbbing goes there are two main choices for rock fans - Rock at the Arena - held at the Metro Radio Arena from about 10.30/11.00p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and Legends which is near the Monument and on Fridays and Saturdays from around 9.30p.m/10.00p.m.
There are other things going on at the Cooperage on the Quayside or the Head of Steam and The Dog and PArrot near the Central Station.
Keep in touch and we could maybe meet at one of these places.

I agree with Carlrea. Heaton is a very convenient place to stay, but some of the student accommodation may not be to a very good standard. Be careful.

There is a newsagent shop at the top of Northumberland Street (Haymarket end, not far from the University) which has advertisements for student accommodation in the window. I sometimes look at them and some of the offers seem good.

The nightlife in Newcastle is great. You will enjoy it.

Best wishes.

Other places are the pubs at the Haymarket at the weekend, Three Bulls,The Percy etc. which have rock discos upstairs at times.

Travel Tips for Newcastle upon Tyne

The City Library

by toonsarah

Although I am a librarian by profession I don’t very often find myself writing “visit the library” tips for VT! But the new City Library in Newcastle is a stunner, and well worth a little of your time.

The library opened in summer 2009 and has been a great success. Officially named the Charles Avison Building after the 18th century Newcastle composer, most refer to it as just the central or city library. It is housed in a six storey block full of light and air, which replaced the old concrete 1970’s building. There are entrances on New Bridge Street and Princess Square – the latter is perhaps more convenient if coming from the city centre, but the former will give you the more striking first view of this impressive building. Look up through the atrium to its many levels; watch how people move and feel at home in its spaces; sense the buzz of enthusiasm and activity too rarely associated with library use (though it should be!)

Then take some time to explore. There are naturally all the usual library offerings: books to borrow (probably of limited interest to short-term visitors); newspapers and magazines (could be a good way to pass some time on a rainy day) and free computers and free wifi (now you’re talking – time to check your VT messages perhaps?). But there are also some real draws for visitors. Check out the small area on the sixth floor, where several beautiful historic illustrated books are on display, as well as tools and a desk used by famed local wood engraver, Thomas Bewick. Enjoy a coffee and home-made cake in the café on the first floor, in a pleasant area overlooking Princess Square (and with tables outside too for a sunny day). And have a look to see if there are any interesting events or activities planned: there are regular author talks, book signings, exhibitions and activities for children. If you want to find out in advance what’s going on at the time of your visit, have a look at the calendar on the Newcastle Libraries website, but bear in mind that it covers all the libraries in Newcastle, so you’ll need to check what’s on where.

Directions From the Monument walk east along New Bridge Street to the library’s main entrance, or from Northumberland Street’s shops turn into Princess Square just south of WHSmith

The Law Courts

by steventilly

Newcastle has now got brand spanking new Law Courts (as has Middlesbrough - must be a bit of money in the justice system :=)) Newcastle's courts are really classy looking and have a great setting on the Quayside. Let's hope you don't have to see the inside!

Where dyu think we are Iceland !

by dazherg

You may notice when you visit Newcastle that there is the occasional coat shop....This is for Tourists only who think Newcastle is cold....

All year round in Newcastle on a night time you will see that nobody wears coats and it is deemed downright silly to even think of wearing one...

Even the women go out with the shortest of skirts and the smallest of tops throughout January and February ...

Town Moor

by toonsarah

Just north of the city centre is the wide open space of the Town Moor, popular with dog walkers and kite flyers. Walking here you'll get a good dose of fresh air and sweeping views of the city to the south - look out for the landmarks of the Civic Centre and St James's Park football stadium. The Hoppings, said to be the largest travelling funfair in Europe, is held here every year in June and is well worth a visit if you enjoy traditional fairground rides and candy floss.

If you should ever be awarded the Freedom of Newcastle you'll be permitted to graze your cows here on the Moor. And unlike in other cities where similar rights exist, people really do take advantage of this, so don’t be surprised if you see cows grazing here so close to the city centre – watch out for those cow pats! Honorary freemen include Bob Geldof, Nelson Mandela and of course Alan Shearer, but I have a feeling none of the cows is theirs!

Metrocentre Gateshead

by CheekyDee about Metrocentre

The Metrocentre in Gateshead is as far as I know, the largest shopping centre in the UK. It really is a massive mall full of all the stores you could want. Average to expensive, it's a great place to shop in. There are little amuesment bits for kids to play in as well in various parts of the mall, and several restaurants. A shopaholic's dream.....
