YHA Newcastle Central

17 Carliol Square, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, NE1 6UQ


YHA Newcastle Central provides the perfect base for your group or school to explore the city Newcastle Upon Tyne. Offering affordable group trips to the city, YHA Newcastle Central is comfortable and contemporary. Every bedroom is also en-suite and corridor zoning is available for your security.

On your self-led school trip in Newcastle, you’ll be spoilt for choice with all the museums and art galleries that are just a stone’s throw away from the hostel. For anyone studying media studies, or any budding TV presenters, the BBC Newcastle Tour takes you behind the scenes of television and radio. Art galleries include the Laing Gallery, full of British art; the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art; and The Biscuit Factory showcasing art, jewellery and crafts. No trip to Newcastle is complete without a visit to the Angel of the North, a 20m high public piece of art.

If adventure and activity is what your group is looking for then you won’t be disappointed. The Spy Mission Trail takes you on a self-guided tour of Newcastle, cracking clues along the way, and is a great way to see parts of the city that you otherwise wouldn’t. The Victoria Tunnel also brings history to life as you follow in the footsteps of the city’s community, who sheltered here during the air raids of the Second World War.

Newcastle has plenty to offer for group trips, residentials and school trips, with easy links back to the National Curriculum and YHA Newcastle Central can’t wait to welcome your group.
