Living in Newcastle-under-Lyme

A shoppers' paradise

All the major supermarkets are near your new home in Newcastle-under-Lyme, but if you'd like to shop local, the market is open six days a week. You’ll enjoy browsing the general market on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the antiques market on Tuesdays, and bric a brac on Thursdays. If you'd prefer high street shopping from your new build, the town centre has the Roebuck Shopping Centre, the Lymelight Boulevard and the Astley Walk Shopping Centre for a mix of big brand names and independent shops. If you would like to choose some plants for your new garden, there's a garden centre and retail outlet at Trentham Gardens - ideal for a Sunday browse. 

Student life

Your new home in Newcastle-under-Lyme has the pick of the primary schools and five secondary schools as well as an independent choice. Newcastle-under-Lyme College is the town’s largest sixth form. The campus of Keele University is three miles from the centre of town, so students are very much a part of this vibrant town.

Perfectly positioned for National Parks
