If you’re on the hunt for incredible holiday destinations, you might consider somewhere like Alaska to catch a view of the Northern Lights, or Bali for those idyllic sandy beaches.
However, Rough Guides has somewhere in mind that’s a little less off the beaten track.
The travel guidebook publisher today released its list of the best places to visit in 2018 and the results are somewhat surprising.
As the host of next year’s The Great Exhibition of the North, Rough Guides has selected the city of Newcastle as the place to be next year. In doing so, it replaces India as Rough Guides’ top holiday tip.
While not necessarily the first place that springs to mind when considering where to visit next, the Geordie city has plenty to offer, with famously friendly locals and its notorious nightlife that fans of reality TV will be all too familiar with.

The ancient Roman amphitheater in El Djem is spectacularly preserved. What’s even more impressive is how such a site on our planet can still be visited with no other tourists. Complete with it’s underground tunnel network where the gladiators used to enter the stadium from, it was such an amazing experience to imagine how it must have felt like being there 1800 years ago.
