Newcastle upon Tyne is one of England's great cities, and one of the most historically significant, with a proud heritage dating all the way back to Roman times. The city grew as an important centre for the wool in the fourteenth century and later became a major coal mining area but it was the famous River Tyne that brought real wealth and prestige to the city with the development of shipbuilding and ship repair work. Today the city is better known for its renowned university, its famous football club and its iconic bridges.

Much of this rich and vibrant port city is still in evidence today. local author Ken Hutchinson takes the reader on their very own A-Z tour around the city's history, exploring the nooks and crannies, and along the way relating many a fascinating tale of the most interesting people and places. Fully illustrated with photographs from the past and present, this new A-Z guide to the city will appeal to residents and visitors alike.
