Have you seen our collection of Newcastle pictures and pictures of North Yorkshire? If you haven’t already, you must! Words don’t do these fine art prints justice. Just like words don’t do these fine locations justice, but we’ll give it a shot anyway!
We’ll try to capture must-see spots in Newcastle and North Yorkshire, and give you a little background into our featured collection of North Yorkshire and Newcastle pictures.
Newcastle is united by seven bridges across a large and gorgeous riverscape. This city is on the north bank of the River Tyne, and makes for a vibrant visitor location, booming with cultural activity and tradition.
Newcastle was originally a settlement that was called Pons Aelius but was later renamed after the Roman fort that once stood at its center. Newcastle is one of the coldest major cities of England, but that doesn’t stop it from being a warm center for art and culture!
A great place to visit in Newcastle is Newcastle Quayside, which is ideal if you want a mix of entertainment and eateries. Newcastle is packed with nightlife and vibrancy, all interlinked together to give you an amazing location with something to do for everyone in the family!
Apart from its bustling nightlife in the modern era, Newcastle also has deep roots in history. One of the major locations that pays homage to history is the Grainger Town area. Being the historical heart of the city, it was built between 1835 and 1842 by Richard Grainger and is packed with some of the most famous and well-known buildings and streets. Some of them are Grainger Market, Grey Street, Grainger Street, Theatre Royal, and Clayton Street. The buildings are normally four stories high and have domes, turrets, and spikes, marking their time in history. Grainger apparently found Newcastle in bricks and wood, and turned it to stone instead, developing it further.
A major location in Newcastle is the River Tyne, which is the focal point for so many artists featured on our website.
There are also a lot of famous Geordies from Newcastle! In fact, George Stephenson, the “Father of Railways”, was a Geordie. Apart from him, Newcastle is also the birthplace of comedian Rowan Atkinson, and singers like Sting and Cheryl. Did you know that Jimi Hendrix, the world-famous guitarist, was discovered by a Geordie producer and member of the iconic band The Animals named Chas Chandler?
There’s no wonder that Newcastle is the inspiration behind so much art!
Just as our collection of fine arts prints is wide, North Yorkshire is the same when it comes to local spots to see. Since it's England’s biggest county, it has a wide expanse of things to see and places to visit.
If a place full of rural landscapes is what you desire, North Yorkshire is the place to be! North Yorkshire has two gigantic national parks to visit. Most of the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors lie in the North Yorkshire boundaries, and 40% of the county itself is covered by National Parks.
If you enjoy history, you can visit the many heritage steam railways, haunting abbeys, and Norman castles in North Yorkshire. Did you know that Richmond Castle walls are the oldest castle walls in Britain outside London?
There’s a lot you can learn from the historic walls of North Yorkshire. It makes sense that this great place would inspire so much art from local artists.
Some of the artists that have contributed to our variety of Newcastle paintings are Alan Smith Page, Anthony Marshall, Rob Myers, Peter Francis, John Coatsworth, Peter Davidson, Ray Campbell, and many, many more. Each of these artists have their own unique style, so there’s a touch of all sorts of styles in our collection.
If you’re feeling homesick for a local Newcastle hotel/pub, then you’d fall in love with “Beehive, Newcastle” by Peter Francis. If you’re a marathon enthusiast and happen to miss the race, you can live the experience through John Coatsworth’ s “Great North Run” Painting.
