Newcastle is the city famous for Brown Ale, its popular nightlife and distinct ‘Geordie’ dialect.
Newcastle prospered from its wool trade in the Middle Ages. However, despite the decline of the wool trade in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the city did not suffer thanks to a royal act in 1530, which confined all shipment of coal to Newcastle Quayside.
Unemployment was high during the 1930’s Great Depression. However, in the 1960’s, the public sector in Newcastle began to expand after the city gained Newcastle University in 1963, a leading international university, which won the Sunday Times University of the Year award in 2000.
Newcastle Polytechnic was then founded in 1992 and is now named Northumbria University, after being awarded university status. More people were also employed in local government administration during this period, expanding the public sector further.
In recent years, the city has benefited from its new rapid transport system. The metro was built in 1978 and Queen Elizabeth II Bridge was constructed and then opened in 1981 to allow the metro to cross the river and travel between Newcastle and Gateshead.
As well as this, the city is well connected due to the founding of Newcastle International Airport in 1935. It is located approximately six miles from the city and also connected to the metro system.
