Newcastle is the largest city in northern England with a metro of 1.6 million residents which is great for coliving. The city is 103 miles south of Edinburgh and 277 north of London. Newcastle's economy includes corporate headquarters, digital technology, retail, tourism and cultural centers, from which the city contributes over 13 billion pounds towards the United Kingdom's gross revenue.
After a busy day working, you might need a night out or a relaxing place to grab a bite to eat. This is not too hard to find in this vibrant cultural center, as there are bars and pubs around almost every corner and plenty of restaurants to choose from as well. Newcastle rests against a river with cafes and diners along the water too. This can be a romantic or casual place to start your night out on the town. Newcastle isn’t one of the first places you'd think of when you think of a coliving space but it shouldn’t be passed up on – more and more nomads are choosing it as a temporary place to reside.
While rent is expensive all around the United Kingdom, rent here certainly isn't London standards, so you're able to save more by choosing a hub like Newcastle to work remotely. There is every kind of transport here you could ever need, from the underground metro to the light rail to take you all around the city. There is also an international airport here that can connect you around Europe to major hubs like London or Frankfurt too.
