Newcastle Wedding Venues and Wedding Services
The bustling City of Newcastle is situated on the north bank of the River Tyne and owes its name to the Norman castle keep which still stands to this day overlooking the city. The castle was built in 1080 by Robert II, Duke of Normandy who was the eldest son of William the Conqueror, and is the oldest structure in a city was has experienced a great deal of redevelopment in recent years. However, despite the springing up of gleaming glass buildings around the city, Newcastle still retains its charming medieval street layout complete with narrow alleys and winding stone steps.
