Aal Aboot Newcastle

Aal aboot Newcastle by David Simpson explores the history, growth and development of Newcastle upon Tyne. Newcastle is not your average northern city, visitors and locals are often surprised by what they find, whether it’s the elegance of Grey Street, the timber-framed houses of Sandhill, the charming cathedral of St Nicholas or the magnificent Tyne bridges. Explore the medieval walls and visit the castle on the site of a Roman fort as you discover the origins and history of the city’s streets before heading out to Byker, Benwell, Jesmond, Eslwick, Heaton and Gosforth and the many places that make up Newcastle upon Tyne.
