The port city of Newcastle upon Tyne, more commonly known simply as Newcastle, is located in the north east of England with a lively and diverse culture. Home to many galleries, museums and theatres, Newcastle is a city that can delight the senses. The River Tyne is home to some of the city’s more historic features including the High Level Bridge – the first major example of a wrought iron tied arch bridge, which was completed in 1849. A short journey out of the city will take you to the impressive Angel of the North sculpture, which stands 20 metres high and has a 54-metre wingspan; and Hadrian’s Wall – a World Heritage Site fortification, built by the Roman Empire in 122AD.

The 98-kilometre Kiel Canal is a freshwater canal that flows from Brunsbüttel, at the North Sea, to Kiel at the Baltic Sea. It was built in 1895, but later widened. Today, it saves an average of 250 nautical miles when compared to going around the Jutland Peninsula.

Since the 19th century, it has been an important seaside resort and, today, it is overlooked by the lighthouse, which was built in 1897.
