Newcastle - The UK's Happiest City

Newcastle, the regional capital of North East England, is one of the UK’s core cities and an integral part of the Northern Powerhouse. With Leeds and Manchester just a couple of hours away and Edinburgh less than two hours, Newcastle has an impressive track record attracting overseas investment as well as homegrown talent. 

The cost of living in the North East is significantly lower than London and other UK cities. When it comes to residential properties, house prices in the North East are 37% lower than the UK average, and you will find a wide range of properties and locations to choose from. From contemporary city-centre apartments with a stunning riverside view to affordable flats perfect for young professionals, the region is becoming a hotbed for savvy property investors looking for the next destination 'boom'.
