City Profile

Newcastle is a populous city in the East of Northern England. The name Newcastle derived its name from a castle built in 1080 by Robert II, Duke of Normandy. He was the eldest son of William Conqueror. Back then, the city developed the center for the wool trade and also became the major coal mining area. Now, it was widely known as a large business and cultural center. It also annually hosts the world’s largest half marathon, the Great North Run. 

Newcastle is a diverse, vibrant, and welcoming city. Which is so popular among students. It has been renowned for its cracking nightlife with a staggering 42,000 strong student population. 5,000 of them are international students coming from different countries.

    Looking at the reviews of this software and its compact design, it is not hard to understand how this app is a gem for many people.
