Getting around Newcastle
Newcastle is a rather compact city centre, which is not ideal for people commuting by car in the morning rush-hour. However, Newcastle’s public transport network is highly efficient. Tyne and Wear Metro connects the city centre with Gateshead, Sunderland, the coast, Newcastle Airport and the railway station.
