The Host city, Newcastle, is a university city on the River Tyne in northeast England. With its twin city, Gateshead, it was a major shipbuilding and manufacturing hub during the Industrial Revolution and is now a centre of business, arts and sciences. Spanning the Tyne, modern Gateshead Millennium Bridge, noted for its unique tilting aperture, is a symbol of the 2 cities. Newcastle is well connected via Newcastle Metro (https://www.nexus.org.uk/metro), Newcastle International Airport (https://www.newcastleairport.com/) and London North Eastern Railway (https://www.lner.co.uk/).
