When it comes to deciding where you should live next, there are a plethora of choices at your fingertips. It can often be hard to decide where you’re going to go, and with mixed reviews about practically every place in the country, it can make things that much more difficult. It can be helpful to have some information about a city or town that simply shows what makes it great.
With that in mind, here are some of the top reasons you should consider moving to Newcastle. It’s a city unlike any other, and we’re sure you’ll agree once you read this.
Iconic & Inspirational
There are some who call it the city of inspiration, notably due to the Tyne Bridge – an icon that has international recognition. In fact, it was the inspiration for the Sydney Opera House, which was built a mere five years later. Newcastle has always been the leader when it comes to innovation and striking new designs.
It was the home of the first locomotive, which then inspired the industrial revolution that took this country by storm. It is a historical centrepiece and a place that lovers of history are sure to want to reside in. More recently the Angel of the North, a modern art sculpture, by artist Antony Gormley has become world famous.
For those who enjoy looking at breath taking buildings in the place they call home, Newcastle is the perfect place for you. Grey Street has been voted the best street in the UK, and with its beautiful curved Georgian houses it’s not hard to see why. Newcastle is also home to the highest ratio of grade one and two listed buildings. Newcastle boasts housing styles from romantic Georgian mansions, to huge Victorian Home, a wealth of 1930’s Semi’s and cutting edge modern complexes.
