Historia de Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle history

Newcastle: the city

Situated on the north bank of the River Tyne, the city developed from a Roman settlement called Pons Aelius, though it owes its name to the castle built in 1080, by Robert II, the eldest son of William the Conqueror. The city grew as an important centre for the wool trade and it later became a major coal mining area. The port developed in the 16th century and, along with the shipyards lower down the river, was amongst the world's largest shipbuilding and ship-repairing centres. These basic industries have now gone and the city is largely an administrative and cultural centre. Among its main icons are Newcastle Brown Ale, a leading brand of beer, Newcastle United F.C., a Premier League football team, and the Tyne Bridge. It has hosted the world's most popular half marathon, the Great North Run since 1981.

Newcastle: the University

The University has its origins in the School of Medicine and Surgery which was established in Newcastle upon Tyne in October 1834, providing basic lectures and practical demonstrations to around 26 students.

Attempts to realise a place for the teaching of sciences in the city were finally met with the foundation of the College of Physical Science in 1871. The college offered instruction in mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology to meet the growing needs of the mining industry, becoming the Durham College of Physical Science in 1883 and then renamed after William George Armstrong as Armstrong College in 1904. Both these separate and independent institutions later became part of the University of Durham, whose 1908 Act formally recognised that the University consisted of two Divisions, Durham and Newcastle, on two different sites. By 1908, the Newcastle Division was teaching a full range of subjects in the Faculties of Medicine, Arts, and Science, which also included agriculture and engineering.

We had a very pleasant stay and a lovely surprise with the pack of toiletries and sachets of hot chocolate provided. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful, as were the kitchen staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Claude Gibb Hall to others.

I would just comment that the curtains did not really fit the windows with the result that I was woken vey early by sunlight in my eyes! Otherwise excellent value and service.

(Comentarios de Castle Leazes Halls, Newcastle)

£45 per day is rather expensive when you consider that Newcastle University charges £29.50 per day. Quite a difference. I'll probably go there next year.

(Comentarios de Claude Gibb Hall, Newcastle)

Really enjoyed the stay and was very impressed with the standard and size of the rooms and kitchen areas. The website could have beenlittle more specific and the kitchen facilities as we had more than was stated.

Lovely quiet location close to the city centre. Very friendly staff, good facilities, great location. I will be syating again on my next trip. Oh and the breakfast is fantastic.

(Comentarios de Castle Leazes Halls, Newcastle)

I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 night stay at Gibb Hall. The proximity of the accommodation to our conference, public transport and the city centre was ideal. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was delicious and the room impeccably clean. I would highly recommend Gibb Hall to anyone.

(Comentarios de Claude Gibb Hall, Newcastle)

I was expecting breakfast to be included in the price at the New Bridge residence, but upon arrival was told it was only offered at the Claude Gibb site. This information should be clarified on the website (universityrooms.com) through which I booked.

(Comentarios de New Bridge Street, Newcastle)

Absolutely brilliant. Cannot fault our stay. Rooms are very well equipped and a few supplies ie. bread, butter, milk and water were most unexpected but greatly received after a long journey. Would definitely stay again and also recommend to friends.
