History and Culture:
Geordies are a fiercely independent bunch, tied together by history, adversity and recognised dialect, the closest language to 1500-year-old Anglo-Saxon left in England. The Geordies are closely knit bunch but fantastically hospitable wanting to show everyone a glimpse of what a great thing they have in the north of England. The natives are raised and subsequently abandoned by coal and steel, Newcastle has matured into an elegant city of grace and culture, with its excellent new art galleries, magnificent concert hall and its growing number of fine restaurants, choice hotels and bars. The city is always developing and is a great place to be and party in!
