About I Love NCL®

We are I Love Newcastle Magazine, an independent dot-com organisation that was born in July 2014 formed in the midst of economic recession with extreme austerity measures, affecting everyone in the North East through one way or another.

We aim to boost local economy by influencing and changing spending habits.

We’re as Newcastle as it gets. A small band of like-minded individuals, Newcastle born and Newcastle bred, who share the same passion – love and affection for our city. We are cool, cultured, cosmopolitan – just like Newcastle. We love Newcastle and we hope you do, too.

The I Love NCL® logo design is basically a spin on the iconic New York State Tourism Department (I Love NY®) designed for one purpose: to spread love – and not just in dark times.

What on earth do we do?
We publish I Love Newcastle Magazine, THE online lifestyle magazine for people who love Newcastle. There’s a lot going on in Newcastle. Things to do and places to go. We like to remind and shout about all the things that make Newcastle one of the world’s great cities – and not just because of the football. We cover local stories, especially ones which show our city in a positive light. We like good news and Newcastle’s got plenty of it.

This last 10 years has been Newcastles’s time. Spirit-ness, fight, integrity of the people. There’s a tribal-ness to it. Why shouldn’t there be. Everyone looks after each other. The magic dust gets sprinkled all over the city. Newcastle reinvented itself, it didn’t wait for a leader. It’s the courageousness and individuality of Geordies.

We’ve been all me, me, me on this page but we assure you, it’s not all about us. It’s the people of Newcastle who make it what it is. People like you. Do you love Newcastle? Of course you do. You wouldn’t be here otherwise, would you now? Please tell a friend, spread the love and leave your friends in no doubt that you love Newcastle just as much as we do!

Our heart's in the right place

Newcastle formerly known as Newcastle upon Tyne, is a city in Tyne and Wear, North East England, not a million miles from Edinburgh and the North Sea. Newcastle is the most populous city in the North East and also one of the most populous urban areas in the UK.

As well as being a European city, Newcastle is also known as a university city boasting Newcastle University as well as Northumbria University.

Newcastle played a major role during the 19th-century Industrial Revolution, and was a leading centre for coal mining, ship building, engineering, munitions and manufacturing. Heavy industries in Newcastle declined in the second half of the 20th century; with office, service and retail employment now becoming the city’s staples.

Newcastle’s economy now includes corporate headquarters, learning, digital technology, retail, tourism and cultural centres, from which the city contributes £13 billion towards the United Kingdom’s GVA. Among its icons are Newcastle United football club and the Tyne Bridge. Since 1981 the city has hosted the Great North Run, a half marathon which attracts over 57,000 runners each year.

Newcastle is a city which houses a unique civic pride between Geordies.
