An enviable quality of life

A great lifestyle

An enviable quality of life offering great value for money.

The North East benefits from one of the lowest costs of living in the UK. With coast or countryside, 20 minutes in either direction, you can easily escape city life.

Newcastle is well connected to the rest of the UK by rail and Newcastle has one of the busiest railway stations in the UK. From Newcastle, the A1 will take you to London and Edinburgh, the A19 to Sunderland, and the A69 to Carlisle.

With the proximity of towns and cities to such great transport links, it is hardly surprising that the North East England workforce spends thirteen hours per year less time commuting than the national average. We have the lowest average commuting distance of 7.8 miles and one of the lowest commuting times of 23.6 minutes.
