NEWCASTLE THEN, NOW & BEYOND: A BREXIT TOUR
URBAN REGENERATION, BREXIT & BEYOND
This tour explores Newcastle’s urban regeneration over the past 30 years from major decline to the hub of culture and science it has become today.
We will trace some of the major projects that have shaped the cityscape so far and also look at the future, taking into account the potential impacts of Brexit…
Once an economic powerhouse and the home of heavy industries such as shipbuilding, engineering and coal mining the North East has suffered more than most regions from post-industrial decline.
Now, with thriving universities, cultural institutions, a service-based economy and pushing for innovative research and technologies the tide has turned and things are looking up. The North East is one of the regions that has benefited from EU Funds over the past decades while benefiting from exports of goods and services to the EU.
And yet it was the only area in the entire North East that voted to remain by a narrow margin in the 2016 referendum. The region still features at the bottom of the leader board compared with the rest of the UK in terms of productivity, economic growth, unemployment, national average incomes and education performance. It will be interesting to see how Newcastle’s story continues amidst the current challenges.
At Newcastle Tour Company, the safety & health of our guests are always of paramount importance to us. This Newcastle regeneration and Brexit tour has been optimised for post Covid-19 Newcastle tours & follows our health protocols.
