The area in depth

The desirable and affluent leafy suburb of Gosforth, to the North of the City Centre, is one of the City’s most sought-after residential areas and it’s easy to see why! The vibrant and bustling High Street at the heart of Central Gosforth has a cosmopolitan feel with its array of independent cafés, bars, shops, restaurants and Central Park, whilst access to the City Centre is only minutes away via excellent bus and Metro links.
Gosforth is home to both excellent state and private schools which makes the area particularly appealing to families and professionals with children of school age. The state schools operate under a popular three-tier system with places highly sought after. The middle schools feed into the local Gosforth Academy which retained its status as ‘outstanding’ following its recent Ofsted inspection and is amongst the highest performing Academies in the North East. Take a look at our Guide to Schools above to find out more about schools in the area.

Fancy dining al fresco? Try Adrianos, a delightful Italian restaurant set back from the high street which has a charming rustic courtyard and its own delicatessen so you can take a taste of the Mediterranean home with you! There are also many charming cafés and coffee shops to meet up with friends for coffee and a spot of lunch!
