More commonly known as Newcastle, Newcastle Upon Tyne is located in Tyne and Wear, North East England, on the banks of the River Tyne. The seventh-most populous city in the United Kingdom and the most populous in the North East, it is home to more than 280,000 people - known as "Geordies." The city evolved from a Roman settlement called Pons Aelius and got its name from a castle built by Robert, Duke of Normandy, in 1080.
Once one of the world's top shipbuilding centres, Newcastle now bases its economy on corporate business, digital technology, learning, and retail. Famous icons of the city include Newcastle Brown Ale, Newcastle United Football Club, and the Tyne Bridge. It has also staged the Great North Run (the world's most popular half marathon) every year since 1981.
