Photos from the North-East of England : Newcastle

The city of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne developed on location of a Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, and owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, Duke of Normandy, the eldest son of William the Conqueror. Today it is a very lively city, proud of its identity and with its own English dialect called 'Geordie'.
