Motorhome Rental Newcastle

Officially known as Newcastle upon Tyne, Newcastle is the biggest city in the northeast of England. It is named after the Norman castle found by the main railway station, which was constructed during the reign of William the Conqueror almost 1,000 years ago. For many years one of the UK’s industrial powerhouses, today Newcastle has undergone a massive renaissance, with a revitalized riverside and a nightlife rated as one of the best in Europe.

Beyond the bright lights of the city, Newcastle is also never far from the quintessential English countryside. In fact, motorhome hire in Newcastle is able to explore the rugged Northumbria coast, the natural beauty of the internationally-celebrated Kielder Water lakefront, and the fascinating finds of Hadrian’s Wall. One of Europe’s most impressive Roman remains, it cuts its way through beautiful market towns such as Hexham and Heddon-on-the-Wall, as well as offering some of the finest vistas anywhere in the north of England.

Getting to Newcastle

Newcastle is located on the north bank of the River Tyne, on the northeast coast of England. It is just 30 minutes from the border with Scotland. Approximately 450 km north of London, it is linked with the capital by the A1 road. Newcastle International Airport is the region’s main hub and sees regular flights from airlines including British Airways, Emirates, Air France and easyJet linking Newcastle with more than 90 destinations internationally. As an example of flight times, the journey to Paris with Air France takes less than two hours.

As a result, trains depart London King’s Cross for Newcastle roughly every 30 minutes. The journey lasts no more than three hours.
