Why Move to Tyne and Wear
Tyne and Wear is a metropolitan county, set in the northeast of England. Situated around the mouths of the rivers Tyne and Wear, the county was created in 1974, by the Local Government Act 1972. The areas consist of five metropolitan boroughs: Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, North Tyneside and South Tyneside.
Anyone considering moving to this diverse area is offered some wonderful places to live.
From the well-known coastal towns of Whitley Bay and Tynemouth to little villages with strange names such as Crawcrook, Hazlerigg and High Dubmire. Plus, plenty of people not only come to the county to visit the city of Newcastle, but many also choose to make it home.
The city is famous for its culture, architecture and its welcoming atmosphere and people.
You can look forward to a hectic social life. People who live here have been nicknamed “Geordies” and they love to party. The city is packed with countless places to dance, watch gigs and eat out.
The wider county is surrounded by plentiful green spaces and areas of outstanding beauty.
Northumberland National Park is simply outstanding. You also have access to the North Pennines and the North York Moors; green space is everywhere. It is almost impossible to be bored as there are so many attractions on offer.
On top of all this, the county offers a cheap cost of living along with excellent connections by road, rail or sea. Tyne and Wear fits the bill on so many accounts.
No matter what kind of place you want to live in, you’re bound to find it Tyne and Wear.

Many schools perform well and have managed to achieve results in writing and maths that are over the national average for England. Of course, every town and village will differ regarding school performance tables.
You will need to do a little investigation before you finally decide where you think is best to live if you are moving with children.
There are some very informative websites you can turn to that can help you with your “homework”. Snobe is one of the best. It is easy to navigate and instantly gives you a list of the best state schools in the county across all ages.
