Newcastle and its immediate surroundings hold some widely-renowned landmarks and significant sights that are well worth visiting, whether it’s your first or hundredth time to the city. Just a short drive from the centre of Newcastle, in Gateshead, is the iconic Angel of the North sculpture. This contemporary artwork designed by Antony Gormley is a standout steel structure that pops up against the rolling hills and countryside behind it and can be seen from miles away. Another object of great importance is of course Hadrian’s Wall, which today remains only as ruins of the original Roman fortification, running out into the rest of Northumberland.
