The Civic Centre which is considered to be a modern classic of its time is Grade II listed and has nine huge flambeaux that span the entrance to this beautifully designed building.

Hotels of every description and price range are on the doorstep, and is just short stroll away from the shops, bars, restaurants, theatres, art galleries, museums and other historical landmarks that have made Newcastle upon Tyne one of the most animated and exciting cities in Europe.
