  • Well I was at University there many moons ago and it is a fantastic city. I am sure people think there are too many students, but they're not always there. It's not far from Newcastle and well situated on the M1. The Cathedral is stunning as is the river running through. I can't recommend it enough.

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are. You can also look at the local tourist board website which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
