Close to nearby chic Jesmond but less popular among students, Heaton is a northern suburb of Newcastle that is a perfect location for first time buyers and home movers.

Only 2 miles from the city centre, the area boasts cute cafes, restaurants with cuisines from all over the world and local, independent shops.

Plus, with Heaton Park on your doorstep and Jesmond Dene right next to it, there is plenty of space for dog walks, picnics and outdoor activities.

The area is also not short of things to do. The People’s Theatre supplies an ample quantity of local theatrical talent, showing up to 12 products a year.

Every Saturday, head to the iconic Armstrong Bridge over Jesmond Dene for the weekly food market.

Or jump on the nearby metro to the beach for a day on the half a mile stretch of Tynemouth’s golden sands.
