Living in Seaton Delaval
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as be a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Wheatfields.
Arts and Entertainment
Seaton Delaval Arts Centre, a pleasant ten-minute stroll from Wheatfields, is a popular community theatre presenting shows and plays including an annual pantomime, and is also used for live music, touring shows, classes and other events. The Hastings Arms, half a mile away, presents live music at weekends, and the theatres and galleries of Newcastle offer a vast spectrum of days and nights out.
There are regular bus services from Seaton Delaval to Whitley Bay, Cramlington and Blyth, as well as a half-hourly Arriva service into Newcastle from bus stops in Double Row, a few minutes from Wheatfields. Trains run from Cramlington Station, three miles away, to Newcastle and the Metro Centre in Gateshead.
Seaton Delaval First School and Whytrig Community Middle School, situated close to each other a few minutes walk from Wheatfields, between them cover education to age 13. Secondary education up to sixth form level is provided by Astley Community High School, which is also within easy walking distance and incorporates a community library and a swimming pool. There are three medical practices in Seaton Delaval, the nearest in Elsdon Avenue, and the choice of dentists includes Rivenhall Dental Surgery, around one and a half miles from Wheatfields.
There is a selection of local shops in Seaton Delaval, including the Seaton Valley Co-operative Society, an independent organisation that operates a supermarket, a post office, an off licence and a pharmacy situated next to each other in Avenue Road, just across the road from the Arts Centre. The same area also contains a newsagent, baker’s shop, a second pharmacy, a bank, ironmonger and a good selection of food takeaways. For an exceptional selection of larger stores and high street names, the Metro Centre at Gateshead, the largest shopping and leisure facility in the UK, is in easy reach.
