About Newcastle

The city was founded by the Romans. They built the first bridge over the River Tyne and named it Pons Aelius. In the 19th century Newcastle became the forefront of the industrial innovation. Nowadays it is the the forefront of technical innovation, leisure and culture.

Wander down to the transformed waterfront, the Quayside, now lined with stylish hotels, designer bars, restaurants and public art. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge, a work of art in itself, arches across the Tyne to link the City to Gateshead Quays and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.

    • Newcastle to IJmuiden with DFDS Seaways

      the only way to scandinavia but a tiring and weary one

    Remarkably poor value for money
    • Newcastle to IJmuiden with DFDS Seaways

      Staff was great, very nice and polite. Although the unloading took much too long and was full of confusion upon landing in Amsterdam. Overall facilities were good. The cost of the food (in our case the bufé and breakfast) is ridiculous. Extremely poor value for money.

    Expensive onboard
    • Newcastle to IJmuiden with DFDS Seaways

      No problems at all with check in, accommodation or the crossing in general. But everything on board is very very expensive. Talk about a captive audience and by goodness they capitalise on it. Take a pic nic.

    • IJmuiden to Newcastle with DFDS Seaways

      Everything fine, except that there was no TV in the cabin as there is on other channel ferries.
