New Homes in Newcastle

New Homes in Newcastle

Welcome to Newcastle Upon Tyne

From museums to parks, sporting arenas and theatres, there’s lots to see and do in the cultural and diverse city of Newcastle. With first-rate transport links and good employment opportunities, a new home in Newcastle upon Tyne could be the perfect choice for you.

A quick history

The history of Newcastle dates back to Roman times when a bridge was built across the River Tyne, and later a fort was constructed for protection. When the Romans left, and the Anglo-Saxons arrived, the area around modern day Newcastle was neglected, until the Normans built a motte and bailey castle that gave the city its name.

In the Middle Ages Newcastle was an important army base, especially during the border war with Scotland. Trade became important, and by the end of the 13th century Newcastle was a major exporter of wool. The population steadily grew to around 10,000 people by the mid 16th century, and a couple of centuries later Newcastle had become one of the country’s biggest print centres.

The Victorian Era had a big influence on the architecture of Newcastle, including Grainger Street, Grey Street and Clayton Street. The Metro was opened in 1980, and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge for pedestrians and cyclists opened in 2001.

Business and industry

Over the centuries, Newcastle has been home to a number of industries including coal, shipbuilding and engineering. Today it is a vibrant area for businesses across all kinds of industries, with major employers including The Go-Ahead Group, Grainger Games, Virgin Money and Greggs. Other companies with a big presence in or around the city include Accenture, British Airways, BAE Systems and the Inland Revenue National Insurance Contributions Office.

Things to do in the area

Newcastle is home to a number of popular museums, including the Great North Museum, the Discovery Museum and Seven Stories children’s book museum. If you want to enjoy a little retail therapy, Eldon Square Shopping Centre is home to lots of high street shops, while Fenwick Newcastle is the city’s flagship department store and one of the biggest of its kind in Europe.

For evening entertainment, you can pay a visit to Theatre Royal and Morden Tower, while the independent Tyne Cinema is also popular.

If you’re a football fan, Newcastle United FC are based at St James’ Park and the ladies team play at Coach Lane Campus. The city also has its own basketball team, the Newcastle Eagles, while Gosforth Park racetrack and Newcastle United Golf Club are nearby.

Travel and commuting

Newcastle is well-connected to towns and cities across the UK by rail, road and air, with the train to London taking three hours to reach King’s Cross and the train to Edinburgh just one hour 45 minutes to Waverley Station.

The Tyne & Wear Metro connects Newcastle, Gateshead and Sunderland, while Durham is around 30 minutes away from Newcastle by car. If you’re travelling abroad, Newcastle International Airport is 10 minutes away from the centre by car or 25 minutes travelling by Metro.
