Area & Hotel History

Newcastle upon Tyne has a rich history dating back almost 2,000 years. In that time it has been controlled by the Romans, the Saxons and the Danes, to name a few. Hadrian’s Wall runs through the city of Newcastle with stretches of the wall and some turrets also visible along the West Road and at the temple of Benwell. The Romans named the area Pons Aelius, and the Anglo-Saxons called it Monkchester, but it became Newcastle after the Norman Conquest, when the Normans built a new wooden castle there as a defensive measure against the rebellious Northumbrians.

 

The 19th century and the Industrial Revolution ushered in a period of great prosperity for Newcastle, founded on the shipbuilding and heavy engineering industries. Newcastle’s famous ‘five bridges’ across the Tyne, are a testament to the engineering skills that flourished in the area in the 19th and early 20th century. Perhaps the best known, the imposing arched Tyne Bridge, opened in 1928 and was built by local firm Dorman Long of Middlesbrough, also responsible for the Sydney Harbour Bridge four years later.

 

The affluent suburb of Heaton where the Corner House Hotel is located has a history dating back to the 12th century, when it was part of the Barony of Ellingham , and nearby Heaton Park contains the ruins often referred to as King John’s Palace or Adam’s House, which dates back to the early 13th century.

 

The development of Heaton and neighbouring Jesmond as prosperous suburbs for the growing Newcastle middle classes reached its peak during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with many of Heaton’s best-loved buildings, such as the Heaton Park Pavilion, Beavans Drapers and the former Ringtons Tea company offices, dating from this period.

 

The Corner House Hotel was built and opened in 1936, at the same time as the Lyric Cinema next door (now the People’s Theatre). A Shirley Temple film was top billing in the Lyric’s opening week, and both buildings, designed by Marshall and Tweedy, have Art Deco detailing.

Local Attractions

About Heaton

The name ‘Heaton’ means high town and it is so called because of its position on the hills above the Ouseburn. Today Heaton is a leafy, affluent area of Newcastle close to the centre with a lively student population. Heaton was once home to Newcastle United under their previous name, Newcastle East End F.C. between 1882 and 1892. East End played at the Heaton Junction Ground on Chillingham Road before moving to their current stadium at St. James’ Park.

 

The Baltic Centre (4 miles)

After opening in 2002 in the iconic former Rank Hovis Baltic Flour Mill on the banks of the Tyne, The Baltic Centre is now a popular visitor attraction. With four diverse gallery spaces and regular exhibitions that in the past have included Martin Parr, Yoko Ono and Damien Hirst, The Baltic Centre is an innovative and provocative contemporary art gallery on Gateshead Quays in Newcastle. This exciting gallery space is well worth a visit while you’re in the city.

 

Metro Radio Arena (4 miles)

The largest concert and exhibition centre in the North East, the Metro Radio Arena has a packed calendar of events throughout the year. The Corner House is a great hotel to choose if you’re attending a concert or exhibition at the arena. Our local Metro station, Chillingham Road, goes straight into the city centre then it’s a short ten-minute walk direct to the arena.

 

Metro Centre (8 miles)

If you are looking for retail therapy, then you will surely find it at the Metro shopping centre. With over 340 stores and restaurants, selling the biggest high street brands, it is the largest and one of the most exciting shopping centres in the UK.

 

Angel of the North (7 miles)

The giant steel structure that stands over Tyneside on its hilltop perch is an impressive piece of public art designed by Antony Gormley, one of the UK’s most celebrated sculptors. Unveiled in 1998, the Angel of the North is seen by over 150,000 visitors every year, more than 90,000 drivers on the A1 and is visible from all over the Gateshead area. Controversial when first revealed, the Angel has been whole-heartedly adopted by Geordies and was even draped with a giant Newcastle Number 9 shirt in tribute to local hero Alan Shearer in 1998.

 

St. James’ Park (3 miles)

Easily accessible from the Corner House, St. James’ Park is home to the mighty Newcastle United. Whether you’re in town to support your own team or you’ve come to see the toon play, the Corner House is convenient and convivial to football supporters of all colours.

 

Tynemouth (8 miles)

A village located at the mouth of the River Tyne and 6 miles from the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, Tynemouth. It has stunning beaches where you can enjoy a wide range of water sports, including surfing, sailing, wind surfing, jetski, sub-aqua, swimming and canoeing.
