Newcastle upon Tyne is a city in north-east England. About 250,000 people live in the city, though even more live in the area around it.

Newcastle is a very friendly city and is mostly famous for the River Tyne, Angel of the North, Newcastle Brown Ale, the great north run, and all the bridges including the iconic Millenium Bridge. The local dialect is Geordie. Pronunciation of "alright", "town" and "house" is "areet", "toon" and "hoos".
