Introduction to Buying, Selling or Investing in Property in Newcastle

From Groves Sales & Lettings

Newcastle upon Tyne is a bustling city on the River Tyne, it’s the largest city in the northeast of England. Newcastle offers so much in terms of culture, with theatres, sports venues and eye-catching architecture. There are also multiple universities and hospitals so there is a great demand for quality accommodation.

It’s easily accessible and boasts a train station on the East Coast Main Line, as well as an airport to the north of the city. It's a commuter city to other places such as Gateshead and Sunderland.

You’ll get a good ‘bang for your buck’ as Newcastle is one of the most affordable cities in the UK. While it’s experienced some growth in property prices in the past years, however we feel more is imminent.
