Newcastle, UK

Home of the EVE: Valkyrie development team

Newcastle is known affectionately to its locals as "The Toon", and is steeped in 2000 years of rich history.

The industrial roots of the city lie in heavy industry and ship building. Today the city is largely recognized as a major business and cultural center, and the region as a whole has developed into a major hub for games development in the UK.

The city and surrounding areas boast some of the most inspirational and iconic architecture in the North East, such as The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, The Millennium Bridge, The Angel of the North and the Sage Gateshead, which plays host to the GameHorizon Conference. The eclectic mix of both historical and modern landmarks and architecture in this vibrant cosmopolitan city, mean that visitors will always find something to see or do.
