Wallsend - A Great Spot for Families
Wallsend, quite literally named after being at the end of Hadrian’s Wall, lies to the east of Newcastle City Centre. Nestled up against the banks of the river Tyne this part of Newcastle is an excellent place to look for family accommodation.
Previously a strong area for coal mining and export Wallsend has been developed over the decades to be a major residential area, containing many pre and post-war estates. Due to it’s distance from the two universities in Newcastle it’s a place rarely looked at by students. This means for family lettings there’s rich pickings to be had, without competing against students or professionals. Homes in Wallsend tend to be better equipped for raising a family with gardens to play in and larger houses with more bedrooms.
As with much of Newcastle quick Metro access means you’re rarely far from either a shopping spree in the city centre or a walk along the promenade at North Shields. Though Wallsend is well equipped on both fronts. High Street provides plenty of shopping opportunities including The Forum shopping centre. If you’re looking for a casual walk out Wallsend Green and Wallsend Park have idyllic views including the Wallsend Hall hotel. In the north of Wallsend is Centurion Park Golf Club, an 18 hole range for those into the sport.
Housing the remains of the roman fort Segedunum, Wallsend is littered with latin signage to commemorate the roman history of the area. In more recent history the town is the birthplace of singer Sting, and the Wallsend Boys Club the starting point in many professional footballers career including Alan Shearer. Wallsend is a place with a rich sense of history and a bright future, an excellent spot for a family to rent accommodation.
