"I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming."

Therese Yeboah

"For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats."

A Warm Welcome to One of the Friendliest Cities in Europe

Newcastle in 2015 is a town of many identities — like many former industrial towns in the UK, recent years have seen extensive regeneration, with coal pits being replaced by restaurants and boutiques. The town now has a reputation for wild nightlife, thanks to the extensive student population and of course the famous Geordie Shore, but there are plenty of quieter and more cerebral pursuits in its museums and art galleries too, such as the Tate Modern-rivaling Baltic Centre for Contemporary Arts. With an added reputation as being the friendliest city in England, there are plenty of reasons enticing people from across the globe to Tyneside.
