Newcastle upon Tyne is regularly named as the UK’s Best University City by MSN Travel Guide. It’s partly due to the city’s compactness, which makes it large enough to be vibrant and exciting while small enough to feel like home. It’s also due to the sheer number of students: one in every six people in the city is a student.

Newcastle is packed with bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs, so it’s easy to see why the city is in the Which? University Guide 2013’s top 10 for its diverse nightlife. Newcastle also features in the worldwide top ten of the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.
