Lying on the north bank of the River Tyne on the north-east coast of England, Newcastle was once a major coal-mining (much of the coal being mined from under the North Sea) and ship-building city. These industries declined during the latter half of the twentieth century and the city today is mainly a cultural and business centre, particularly noted for its night-life, its world-famous Newcastle Brown Ale and Newcastle United FC.
