Newcastle Upon Tyne
Is the heart of the North East, both in terms of the people and the city. Throughout the last decade, the city has undergone an exciting regeneration and has some of the most breath-taking cityscapes that the county has to offer. From the modern bars and restaurants on the Quayside to the beautiful Victorian architecture on Dean Street, Newcastle really does have it all. The planners encouraged residential development in the city and this led to a number of high quality apartments such as Central Lofts, The Quadrant, Blandford Square and The Bar on the west side, Blackfriars, in the centre and 55 degrees North which was converted from offices at Swan House (Named after the real inventor of the light bulb) situated at the North end of the iconic Tyne Bridge. Built as a prototype for the Sidney harbour bridge it remains one of the famous 5 bridges to cross the Tyne immortalized in song by Keith Emmerson. The Quayside east accommodates the new Courtroom and further developments for sale and to let such as Hannover Mill, Merchant Quay and Lime Square all still very popular with buyers and tenants and all in easy reach of the city centre, the Bigg Market where all the excesses of Friday night revelry can be observed and the inspirational Millennium bridge or Blinking Eye as it is known. The reason so many want to buy and rent in the city centre is the varied nightlife. Entertainment at the 02 academy, the City Hall and Metro arena are complimented by The Theatre Royal and New Tyne Theatre.
