This is a list of mayors and the later lord mayors of the city of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the United Kingdom.

Newcastle had elected a mayor annually since 1216. The city was awarded the dignity of a lord mayoralty by letters patent dated 27 July 1906.[1] The grant was announced by Edward VII on a visit to the city on 12 July, having been approved by the Home Office as Newcastle was "the chief town and seaport of the North of England".[2][3] When the city became a metropolitan borough in 1974 the honour was confirmed by letters patent dated 1 April 1974.
