Living in Newcastle upon Tyne

Thriving industries

If you’re moving to the city for work, there are a wide variety of flourishing industries to support your career. Newcastle has the fastest-growing digital sector in England, is one of six designated UK science cities and is a major centre for renewable, offshore and subsea energy industries. It’s also the base of some of the largest business and professional services. A new home here will mean that all of these exciting career opportunities will be on your doorstep.

Easy to get around

With Newcastle’s famous culture and nightlife to enjoy, you’ll want to be able to explore the city easily. With a metro system connecting Newcastle and the surrounding areas, regular buses, a ferry service and the benefit of its walkable size, you’ll easily be able to get around. The train station offers direct services to Edinburgh and London, and the airport, located just outside the city centre, flies to many international destinations.

Countryside and seaside

The city has central parks bigger than Hampstead Heath and Hyde Park combined, but if you find yourself craving even more green space, Newcastle has great links to both the countryside and the seaside. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the UK are easily accessible, and many seaside destinations, like Seaburn and Cullercoats Bay are linked by public transport. More than half of Gateshead, just over the River Tyne, is made up of countryside and features many walking trails. The Hadrian’s Wall path, which stretches coast to coast, is also within easy reach. A new home in Newcastle will mean that all of this natural beauty is available to you.
