Newcastle-upon-Tyne is one of the happiest and most exciting places to live in the UK. If you’re looking for your first property to rent, Newcastle is a great location. The city has many popular areas in which to live. Here are three of the most highly sought after:

  • Gosforth – Gosforth is north of the city centre, and is also a popular letting hotspot. It’s an affluent area which attracts many young professionals from the North East and around the UK. Central Gosforth and South Gosforth have their own Metro stations so getting into the city centre is a breeze. The location’s urban mix and partial rural setting is part of the appeal for people looking for their first letting property here. Places to visit in the area include Gosforth Central Park and the Town Moor, a 400 acre of green space. Around a mile away is a bowling alley and equestrian centre. There’s no shortage of pubs, shops or restaurants either.
  • Jesmond – the residential suburb of Jesmond is just north of the centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and it offers a range of professional properties to rent. It’s on the east side of the Town Moor and is considered to be one of Newcastle’s most fashionable locations. It has great architecture, plenty of open green spaces and is well connected by the Metro system. Many professionals enjoy Jesmond for its leafy avenues of cycle lanes, quaint shops, quirky cafes and boutique restaurants. The area is well known for its Parish Church, the Royal Grammar School and of course Jesmond Dene. Jesmond Dene is a conservation area, a beautiful public park with woodland, crags and waterfalls. There are two more conservation areas here to visit, Brandling Village and South Jesmond.
  • Newcastle City Centre – many professionals choose to live in the centre of Newcastle for the good public transport links, rail/Metro/coach. Getting in and out of the city by car is also easy to do. What’s more, the city centre offers many impressive and affordable property rentals. Whichever letting property you choose; the heart of the city is blessed with world-class architecture. Grey Street for instance is often named as the finest street in Britain while the Tyne Bridge is an iconic symbol of Newcastle itself. Living here you’ll be within walking distance of shops, restaurants, cafes and a vibrant nightlife. Visit the Quayside, Newcastle City Hall or how about taking in a premier league football match at St James’ Park?
