It comes as no surprise with the city’s stunning architecture from the Georgian Grey Street (often voted the finest in Britain) to the Tyne Bridge.

Newcastle pride is another important factor when deciding to live in the city. Pride runs deep, ask anyone from Newcastle, and more often than not they will tell you they are proud to live here. Many professionals from the north east and beyond have made Newcastle their home. The city has great transport links, by road, rail, the Metro underground, not to mention Newcastle International Airport.

If you’re on the fence about moving to the north east, there are many positive reasons to do so. Newcastle upon Tyne is a lively, small city with less than a 300,000 population. This means it’s quick and easy to get around, most people use the Metro, bus, cycle or walk. The nightlife scene is fantastic with clubs, gigs, comedy, dance, bars and pubs, you name it, Newcastle’s got it. What’s more, the Geordies flock to St James’ Park to watch their football team play, it’s a great place to soak up the atmosphere and get a vibe for the city.
