Attractions near the Hotel Du Vin Newcastle
Discover the Tyne Bridge
If you think Newcastle's iconic Tyne Bridge looks familiar, it’s for good reason. When it was built in 1928, it was the largest single-span bridge in the world, but that’s not what it’s most notable for. It's actually recognised more for its design, which closely mirrors the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The bridge is a main thoroughfare for travellers, linking Newcastle itself to nearby Gateshead, home of the famous Angel of the North. The Tyne Bridge is one of many that stretch across the vast River Tyne and other bridge structures such as the Millennium Bridge are also worth taking a look at.
Go underground in the Victoria Tunnel
Newcastle is a city built on the back of coal riches. The mines were mostly shut down in the late 20th Century, but much of the city was built for the coal industry – the Victoria Tunnel is no exception. This four-kilometre-long tunnel links the River Tyne to the Town Moor and was once used to transport coal to boats waiting on the water. The Tunnel was also used during World War II as an emergency air raid shelter.
Guided tours are available and recommended for history buffs and curious travellers. A local guide walks you through the tunnel system, explaining the various uses over time, and also talks you through the development of the city and the Victoria Tunnel's evolution.
