Newcastle is named the best place to visit in 2018

Whey aye pet

According to The Rough Guide 2018 Newcastle is officially the number one travel location in the world. The guide, which debates the 18 best places to visit in 2018, showed the Toon coming out on top. We beat the likes of Malawi (third place), Malta (fourth place) and Cuba (sixth place).

A national treasure

This success comes as The Great Exhibition of the North is being held in Newcastle next summer. But, let's be honest, we know that it's much much more than that. The Toon is just genuinely the best place ever.

The guide states that "2018 is Newcastle's time to shine", in our eyes, however, the Toon has been shining for years and will always continue to do so. We already know that it's by far the best uni in the UK, but now it's nice to know that we have global status as well.
