Gateshead is one of many amazing towns in Tyne and Wear. It is a safe place to live, with low crime rates, has affordable homes, plenty to do with your family, friends – and excellent transport links to the rest of the North East and beyond.
Serviced by major roads, including the A1 and A19 motorways, it is easy to get to all the other large towns and cities in the North East, including Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham as well as to Newcastle International Airport. You’re also only a short distance from the stunning North East coastline. Or for retail therapy, there is the Metrocentre, Europe’s largest indoor shopping centre.
Gateshead is very well connected locally and is home to Gateshead Interchange – the busiest bus and Metro station in Tyne and Wear.
The Metrocentre offers a range of trains to and from Carlisle, Hartlepool, Sunderland, Newcastle and Wrexham.
Gateshead has a lot to offer cyclists and the town has many, safe cycle routes including e-bike hire.Cycling routes
