Named ‘the happiest place to live’ in the UK, Newcastle is a bustling, cultural city located along the River Tyne, with lots to see and do in the centre and beyond. From vibrant shopping districts to fascinating museums and an exciting party scene, Newcastle certainly deserves its status as the capital of the north east.
Our Jurys Inn hotel in Newcastle is located right in the city centre, just a short walk from the train station and the city’s most exciting sights and attractions. Whether you’re shopping, partying or taking a business trip, Jurys Inn Newcastle is ideally positioned for your stay in the city, with 274 comfortable rooms each with an ensuite bathroom, flat screen TV and free WiFi.
After enjoying a pick-me-up at our on-site Costa Coffee, go and find out more about local history at the Great North Museum, take the little ones to the children’s book museum Seven Stories, or visit the Life Science Centre. If you love sports, a tour of St James’ Park, home of Newcastle United Football Club, is a must.
After wandering through the beautiful architecture in Grainger Town, enjoy a spot of retail therapy in the Intu Eldon Square Shopping Centre or go and browse the collections at the Laing Art Gallery. As night falls, go see a show in the Grade I listed Theatre Royal, or have a laugh with friends at The Hyena comedy club.
There’s lots to see just a short drive or train journey out of Newcastle, so make sure you explore beyond the city itself. Enjoy a peaceful walk through Jesmond Dene Park, visit the iconic Angel of the North, or take the kids to Bill Quay Community Farm in Gateshead. Other attractions just a short drive away from Jurys Inn Newcastle include Tanfield Railway, Beamish Open Air Museum, and Longsands Beach.
