Gateshead and Newcastle-upon-Tyne are joined together across the river Tyne by seven bridges.

The people in this area are known for being friendly and there is a strong sense of regional identity. Gateshead Quays has the most contemporary and stylish cultural and leisure attractions to be found along the Tyne. Next to the world famous Tyne Bridge there's the stunning Millennium Bridge, the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and of course the fabulous Sir Norman Foster building, The Sage Gateshead a new home for music both national and international.

More than £250 million has been invested over recent years in major new cultural and leisure facilities along the river bank. Gateshead is a pleasant combination of urban development in the east and rural land to the west. Some of the best coast and countryside in the country are all easily accessible from Gateshead. The area is well served with public transport, and air and ferry links to mainland Europe are both about seven miles away.

And of course, Gateshead is home to Anthony Gormley’s world famous multi-award winning sculpture, the Angel of the North. This major landmark at the entrance to Gateshead is Britain’s largest sculpture and is seen by more than 33 million people every year.
