Best areas to live in Newcastle

Moving to the Toon gives you plenty of options when it comes to areas to live. Whether you’re looking for a laid-back, beachy resort, an upmarket suburb with excellent schools, or a buzzing area with great nightlife; there’s the perfect place for everyone, regardless of budget.


One of the most upmarket neighbourhoods in Newcastle, average house prices in Jesmond cost £313,422. A lot of properties here are spacious Victorian builds, featuring high ceilings and beautiful bay windows. Whilst Jesmond is only two miles out of the city centre, it has everything you could possibly need, including plenty of bars, eateries and shops, not to mention picturesque Jesmond Dene park.


Gosforth is north of Jesmond, an 11-minute drive out of Newcastle city centre, with average property prices slightly cheaper, at £295,737. It’s hugely popular with families, due to the several schools in the area that are rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Homes are spacious here too, with wide open streets lined with airy Edwardian and Victorian properties.

Whitley Bay

For those that prefer the beach to city life, Whitley Bay is the perfect answer. Home to a two-mile stretch of a beautiful, sandy Blue-Flag beach, it’s also home to the iconic St. Mary’s Lighthouse. The average value of a home here costs £279,093, as well as the breath-taking Spanish City building, which is now a premier destination for all-things dining. However, the bright lights of Newcastle isn’t far away, as Whitley Bay is on the Tyne & Wear metro.


Having undergone several transformations over the years, Quayside is now well-known as the ultimate nightlife destination in Newcastle, with lots of pubs, bars and restaurants lining the banks of the river. The average property here costs £173,054, with the majority of housing consisting of flats. If you can get a riverside view, then even better, as you’ll get to see all 7 bridges crossing the river.


Located 3.5 miles north west out of Newcastle, homes are pretty affordable in Fenham, with average values standing at £159,846. Ideal for young professionals and first-time buyers, it’s an extremely multicultural area, and is home to a range of independent shops, as well as Fenham Baths, the library, and St. James’ and St. Basil’s church.

Things to do in Newcastle

The jewel of the north east, Newcastle is rich in entertainment, shopping, culture and history. No matter how you enjoy spending your weekends, rest assured there will be so many things to keep you entertained. Its close positioning to the likes of Sunderland, Durham, and picturesque Northumberland will mean there’s lots of weekend trips to be had too.

Head to BALTIC Centre for contemporary art

Possibly the coolest museum in Newcastle (well, technically Gateshead), make sure you head up to the fifth floor for views of the city, before making your way down floor by floor. Exhibitions continuously change, so you’ll always get to see something new, and you can round off your trip with a bite to eat at the rooftop restaurant.

Tick the Angel of the North off your bucket list

It sounds cliché, but the Angel of the North is synonymous with Newcastle (despite being located on the other side of the river, in Gateshead). It’s seen by more than one person every second, due to its positioning by the A1, but it’s worth a walk up to it, so you can see the 200 tonnes of steel, and 54-metres wide wings in all its glory.

Wander around Ouseburn

Down by the Quayside, Ouseburn is often referred to as the hipster side of Newcastle, and is home to lots of pubs, as well as live music, and beautiful views of the River Tyne. On your way over to Ouseburn, be sure to stop off at the Biscuit Factory, which is a former Victorian warehouse that now houses the biggest arts, craft and design gallery in the country.

Spend the day at Whitley Bay

Whether or not you choose to settle down in Whitley Bay, make sure you pay it at least one visit during your time in Newcastle! The Blue Flag beach is definitely a draw, but so is the Tynemouth Aquarium, the playhouse, and of course, nearby Hadrian’s Wall.

Discover the Victoria Tunnel

If you can’t get enough of historical facts, then make sure you visit Victoria Tunnel when in Newcastle. Originally a 19th century wagonway, it was used as an air raid shelter during WW2. Now, you can step back in time yourself, with a guided tour of the tunnel. A lot of gruesome and grizzly goings-on happened in this tunnel, so you may not be surprised to hear the rumours of paranormal activities and ghoulish sightings in the past.
