The Pattern Shop building, behind Newcastle Central Station, is where industrial pioneer Robert Stephenson built steam locomotives in the 1800s for export around the world, heralding the birth of the railway and a key moment in the industrial revolution. The building is truly unique and sits at the very heart of historic Newcastle.
