Living here gives you the all the perks of being close to transport links and the benefits of city centre living but at a lower cost and in a quieter community. Ideal!
Going out and leisure
Students and professionals alike love Spital Tongues due to its great location - so close to the city centre without the city centre price tag. The area is close to the RVI hospital and both university campuses, you’ll be particularly close to Newcastle University Campus and the Medical and Dental schools.
You’ll also find Leazes Park, St James' Park, Eldon Square, Northumberland Street, The Gate and the world-famous Newcastle Gateshead Quayside easily accessible and this makes Spital Tongues a brilliant location to consider whether you’re looking for a property for sale or to rent.
It’s not all about being close to the city centre though, there are local stores, green spaces and pubs on your doorstep too. There’s a Londis on Morpeth Street, The Cosy Dove pub and Hunters convenience store on Hunters Road as well as a range of restaurants and takeaways nearby.
