Part of the Newcastle-Gateshead metropolitan area, Gateshead has intimate links with its bigger neighbour across the river, while still retaining its own identity as a regional centre for arts and architecture.
As with Newcastle just across the river, Gateshead has regenerated its waterside to create an attractive area with apartments, bars and restaurants, and excellent arts venues, including the stunning Sage Gateshead live music venue, with its distinctive curved steel roof. Other notable architecture includes the Angel of the North, the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, one of seven bridges that join the town to Newcastle and provide those staying in serviced apartments in Gateshead with an easy route across the River Tyne.
Transport around the Gateshead-Newcastle area is greatly helped by the Tyne and Wear Metro, a rapid transit rail system, while the Gateshead Interchange is the busiest bus station in the region. Access to the East Coast Main Line is at Newcastle Central Station and the A1 runs along the western edge of Gateshead, through Dunston, a really popular residential area. Our Gateshead serviced apartments provide secure and flexible accommodation right in the heart of the town and with great access to the whole of the Tyne and Wear district.
