North Shields is approximately 8 miles north east of Newcastle city centre sitting between Tynemouth and Wallsend with a population in excess of 35,000 and a wider conurbation in excess of 200,000.
The property is positioned at the junction of Queen Alexandra Road and Walton Avenue; a very prominent corner position immediately next door to a newly developed Co-op convenience store with shared car parking facilities. This is a densely populated suburban location approximately 1 mile to the north of North Shields town centre positioned on one of the main arterial routes into North Shields benefitting from a high volume of traffic and less than a 10 minute walk to North Shields metro station.
The property is located in a predominant and densely populated residential location with other businesses including the Alexandra Pub, North Tyneside VODA, Queen Alexandra College, Ciba Café, Ruby’s Flowers and K1 Barbers as well as a number of other local retailers and businesses.
