Newcastle Civic Centre (opposite this pub) is a grade II listed building, officially opened by King Olav V of Norway in 1968. The central lawn in the Quadrangle is open to the public and contains a fine bronze sculpture by David Wynne of Swans in Flight. The Five Swans rising from the pool of water ‘reflect the city’s long-established links with Scandanavia’. The five countries (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland) are each represented by a wild swan.
