Newcastle - The home of Geordies
Newcastle City Centre is a friendly and vibrant modern metropolis that is cosmopolitan and chic. The mixture of architecture styles and contrasting wide lane thoroughfares and narrow mysterious lanes make this one of Britain's most exciting and surprising cities.

There is a lot more than Newcastle in this region though, and we hope to show you lots of what is colloquially known as 'God's Country'

Lindisfarne (Or Holy Island) is a photographers paradise and Geordielife aims to give a better quality of photograph over the coming months. In the past we have published 'point and shoot' pictures purely to get information across. We will now attempt to portray the beauty of where we live with some flair and professionalism.

History of Newcastle upon Tyne

Many of our large towns and cities are products of the "industrial revolution" of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; but Newcastle upon Tyne has a long and proud history, documented since Roman times.
The Romans realised the military value of the site in its command of the Tyne crossing: they built a bridge guarded by a fort - called "Pons Aelius" - in about 122 AD, which formed a vital part of the frontier defence system which we know as Hadrian's Wall.

  R.I.P. Brendan Healey

It is wth great sadness we learn the death of one of The North East's greatest 'Geordie' comics and musician. He will be sadly missed indeed. Long may he be remembered.

'Few Geordie entertainers boasted both the wit and personality of Brendan Healy.In this day and age when many so-called Geordie celebrities find their fame though reality TV and their drinking and bed-hopping antics, Brendan was the real deal.
Whether he was taking to the stage in panto, compering a black tie event, doing his hysterical brand of stand-up, or acting on the small screen, he always had whoever he was performing to enraptured. He was a gem, and the same could be said of when he was off-stage too.
He was first known for being a musician, playing keyboards in groups around his native North East – perhaps most famously with folk rockers Lindisfarne.But he soon then moved into theatre and was immediately snapped up by AndreaWonfor, then of Tyne Tees Television, to present children’s television, most notably Razzmataz

Geordieland' in Focus


North East England is a place of contrast. The East side is seaside and the West side heathery hills and moody mountains with the famous World Heritage Site Hadrian's Wall running right through the middle. The result? There’s lots to do, both indoors and out. 

Sparkling cities like Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland, Middlesbrough and Durham are thriving with lots of shopping and plenty of nightlife. Bustling market towns and pretty villages are scattered around the region.

North East England can lay claim to being The Cradle of English Christianity - St Aidan came to Holy Island in AD635 and English history was first written by Bede, at Jarrow. There’s also Durham, with "the finest Norman Cathedral in the world". Lindisfarne is not to be missed, with its Castle and Priory it is a Mecca for pilgrims from all over the World.

The North East of England has been home to pioneers across the centuries. The world’s first public railway steamed into lifehere and the award-winning Gateshead Millennium Bridge is one of the world’s most celebrated pieces of architecture.

Enjoy a taste of the 'Geordie' culture which is the best of British life here and you can be guaranteed of a truly passionate experience in North East England.

Getting to North East England is easy. 'Geordieland' is well situated in a central location on the east coast and well placed for visitors travelling from  Europe as well as the rest of England and Scotland. We're only 3 hours from London by train and a mere 40 minutes by air, and less than 2 hours from Edinburgh by train. Once you're here you could be a million miles away with golden sand and quiet country roads before you, and with our excellent network of public transport routes it's easy to travel from coast to countryside.
