The town of Gateshead enjoys a superb location in Tyne and Wear. Not only a bustling town in its own right, it also sits directly across the river from Newcastle, meaning that Gateshead residents get to enjoy the best of town life right on the doorstep of one of the uk's most exciting cities. Hopper House residents, for example, are within walking distance of the town centre, where they can enjoy easy access to plentiful shops, supermarkets, banks and leisure facilities, including a nearby Vue Cinema. Students living at Hopper House can reach Gateshead College's Baltic Campus on foot in just 10 minutes, while Newcastle University is merely a brisk half hour walk away (or a 9 minute drive).
Gateshead is home to some 200,000 people, with a town economy valued at £4.18 billion. The town is building quite the reputation for its innovative business culture and young, talented workers.

Meanwhile, Northern Gas and Power announced plans to create up to 500 jobs in Gateshead earlier this year, while the Gateshead Economic Growth Acceleration Plan is supporting the creation of 4,000 jobs between 2015 and 2020. Local employment opportunities abound, schools are good and real estate is affordable.
