Newcastle is a forward-looking city, situated on the right-hand bank of the river Tyne and is known for its imposing bridge, its great shopping and its lively nightlife. Formerly an industrial city based around shipbuilding, Newcastle has undergone a cultural transformation which in recent years has seen the opening of the internationally recognised Baltic art gallery, as well as the striking Millennium Bridge in the up-and-coming quay-side area. For families there are two great interactive museums, including the Life Sciences Centre and the Discovery Museum and for sports fans, Newcastle United often runs guided tours of its grounds. In the evenings the city offers something for every taste, with a good choice of restaurants, theatres, cinemas and bars.
For An Authentic French Quarter Experience… Treat yourself to the very best of New Orleans. Dozens of hotels carry French Quarter addresses, but few New Orleans hotels can claim the rich heritage of the Maison Dupuy. Our hotel is nestled within the Vieux Carre, or “Old Square,” the original seven square blocks along the Mississippi River established as the French Quarter in 1722. No new hotel rooms have been permitted in this exclusive region of New Orleans since 1972. Don’t settle for one of countless hotels crammed at the edge of the French Quarter in the “Rope Walk” area of New Orleans. For accommodations within the true heart of French Quarter, choose the Maison Dupuy.
