Discover a busy city that's rich with history

Between three cathedrals, a castle, and architecture that dates back to the Normans, Newcastle is an area with a deep heritage to explore. There are more than 30 museums across the Tyne and Wear region, including the Centre for Life and the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle itself.

You can visit the remains and reconstructions of Hadrian's Wall, admire the architecture of the St. Nicholas cathedral, or take a tour of the Castle Keep – the fortress that gave the city its name.

Indulge in culture and shopping in a vibrant setting

Whether you're looking for international brands or quirky boutiques, Newcastle has plenty of places where you can treat yourself. You'll find John Lewis and Debenhams, as well as over 150 high street names at intu Eldon Square, or you can find vintage and hand-crafted specialist goods in the many independent stores of High Bridge.

And when you fancy a night out, you can see West End shows, opera, music and ballet at the wide range of theatres and venues across Newcastle – such as the Tyne Theatre and Opera House, the oldest working Victorian theatre in the world.

You'll also see all manner of trendy and traditional restaurants, cafés and pubs dotted all over Newcastle and nearby Gateshead – making it an ideal location for a socially active retirement.

Make the most of a retirement property by the sea

It's only a few miles from the city centre to the bays, beaches and buzzing seaside towns of the north east coast. There are miles of coves and cliffs to explore – including four areas near Newcastle that were awarded the prestigious Blue Flag mark of quality. You'll also find that ice creams and sandcastles are a perfect excuse to bring your family up for a visit!

Further inland, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about in the rural landscapes of the North East. There are more than 20 different golf courses in the Tyne and Wear area, including nine in Newcastle itself.  

And just 20 miles away from the city, you can explore the enormous Northumberland National Park, an expanse of 400 square miles of hills and moorland. It's also home to Kielder Forest, the largest man-made area of woodland in England, where you can visit the 18th-century Kielder Castle, as well as the Kielder Astronomical Observatory.
