Newcastle, or Newcastle upon Tyne, is a historic city in the north-east of England and if you include the city’s surrounding urban zone, it is the 8th most populated area in Britain. Newcastle is particularly beautiful and has been described as ‘England’s best looking city’ by Stuart Maconie, a prominent radio broadcaster and journalist. This is in part due to Grey Street that curves down from Grey’s Monument towards the valley of the River Tyne and this road was voted Britain’s finest by Radio 4 listeners in 2005. Newcastle however, has much more to offer than picturesque beauty and is particularly renowned for its nightlife. In the Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Destination Awards for European Nightlife destinations, Newcastle came 3rd behind London and Berlin. The city also has a variety of theatres, music venues and restaurants and Newcastle also has its own China town – something that only 6 other British cities can boast about. Newcastle clearly has lots to offer and therefore it is unsurprising that reallymoving.com and our RICS regulated Chartered Surveyors have helped almost 1200 people relocate to the city in 2016.
Situated on the River Tyne, Newcastle is a city at risk of flooding and such incidents date back to at least 1339. More recently, the city experienced flooding due to heavy rainstorms and in June 2012 the ‘Toon Monsoon’ flooded over 500 residential properties causing lasting damage in the form of damp, mould and rot.
