Newcastle last year was branded the ‘happiest place to live in the UK’ by the European Commission. We already knew that, of course – but it’s great to receive further confirmation!
From the serene views of the Tyne to the stunning Theatre Royal, those who live in Newcastle are surrounded by world class architecture at every turn. The 88-year-old Tyne Bridge is symbolic, as is the Georgian Grey Street in the city centre!
Newcastle is also a city steeped in history – Blackfriars is the oldest restaurant building in Britain, Newcastle University Medical School is one of the oldest in the world, and the Geordie accent is thought to be the oldest in the UK!
What’s more, the areas surrounding the city centre are a joy to live in, too. Jesmond comprises the tranquil calmness of Jesmond Dene Park, as well as the liveliness of Osborne Road – the suburbs main port of call for a social catch-up!
Furthermore, a 25-minute journey on the metro will take you to seaside town Tynemouth, where you can take in the air from the Northerly sea as you tuck into your fish and chips, if you ever fancy escaping the city centre’s booming atmosphere!
