We've compiled a handy guide with the most popular areas for Newcastle professionals. Find out about each area and why they're so popular below.
Newcastle has a great, compact, city centre, and a strong sense of identity. There’s a real sense of belonging. You can choose to live by the Quayside and enjoy easy access into the city centre and the Ouseburn, or live close to university or work – the RVI Hospital and both Newcastle and Northumbria Universities are major employers in the city.
Living in a flat on the Quayside in Newcastle is the ultimate home goal - close to everything you need and with amazing views of the Tyne. The views of the bridges and buildings on each side are world famous, and every local amenity you could imagine is right there on the doorstep.
Fenham is in the west-end of Newcastle upon Tyne, to the west of the city centre, and neighbours a large area of open land known as the Town Moor. Located within walking distance of Newcastle city centre and both unis, Fenham is a popular choice for students and professionals.
Gateshead is a prime location south of the River Tyne, and is near the Angel of the North, the Metrocentre, the Baltic Art Gallery and Sage arts venue. Gateshead is a popular area to rent for students and postgraduates, professionals and families, with a good range of local amenities, transport links and schools available.
Gosforth is a great area for family life with lots of good schools nearby and in surrounding areas. Gosforth is also popular with postgraduates and professionals as it’s great for commuting into the city centre for work, study or leisure.
Shieldfield is an area of Newcastle upon Tyne just outside the city centre, with the benefit of living near the city centre without having to pay city centre prices. Professionals, postgraduates and students are all well-suited to living in property in Shieldfield, thanks to its excellent location for travelling into the city centre for work or to either Newcastle or Northumbria University campuses.
