The crossing from Amsterdam to Newcastle docks at the International ferry terminal in North Shields, about 7 miles from the city centre. Your ticket includes 2 nights onboard the cruise ferry in a private ensuite cabin, entertainment on board and upon arrival, via coach transfer, allows for up to 6 hours to explore the city.
If you’d prefer an extra night in Newcastle to explore all that the city has to offer then choose a 3 night trip, however you’ll need to make arrangements for the middle night of your trip separately.
A port city in the north east of England, in its two thousand years, Newcastle has grown from a defensive fort on Hadrian's Wall to become one of the most lively and diverse cities in the UK.
Newcastle is famous for its Geordie culture and perhaps its football team - Newcastle United, but if you’ve never been there, you’d be forgiven for not knowing what a wonderful city it is. Newcastle features world class shopping at Grey Street and Grainger Town, awe-inspiring attractions such as the Tyne Bridge, Victoria tunnel, the remains of Hadrian's Wall, Jesmond Dene Park, an array of galleries and so much more.
Newcastle city centre is relatively easy to navigate on foot and as many areas are pedestrianized, it’s a great destination to spend the day in for a short break.
