Newcastle upon Tyne is the commercial capital of the north east of England and is situated approximately 300 miles to the north of London, 100 miles to the south of Edinburgh and 100 miles to the north of Leeds. The city has good communication links, being situated on the main A1(M) connecting London and Edinburgh and also links with Carlisle and Cumbria to the west via the A69 trunk road. Newcastle Central Railway Station in the city centre, forms part of the east coast main line between Edinburgh and London. Newcastle International Airport is located approximately 7 miles to the north west of the city centre and provides daily flights to most major domestic and European destinations.
In addition to over ground rail connections, Newcastle is the only city in England outside of London to benefit from an
underground rail network. The Metro has 60 stations across the North East connecting Newcastle City Centre to the wider
conurbations including Sunderland, South Shields and Newcastle Airport. The closest Metro stations to Durant Hall are Haymarket (0.4 miles) and Manors (0.4 miles).
Durant Hall is very conveniently located in Newcastle city centre, on the campus of Northumbria University and well positioned for both the Metro and vehicular access, being located only a short walk from two Metro stations and being very close to the Central Motorway (A167). Immediately to the rear of the property is Ellison Place car park, which has 119 car parking spaces. The property shares a green / courtyard with Picton Manor, comprising restaurant and offices and student accommodation as well as The Wynne Jones Building and The Ellison Building comprising a number of lecture theatres and study areas. The Ellison Building has recently been extended to provide cutting edge laboratories and facilities for 3,500 students reported to have cost Northumbria University £52m (northumbria.ac.uk).
