Browning Court is situated in the residential area of Fenham on the North West side of Newcastle and within two miles of the A1 Western Bypass. The site, accessed from Fenham Chase, is pleasantly set back from Fenham Hall Drive which provides ready access in to the centre of Newcastle.

A regular bus service operates in to the City, with a bus stop immediately outside the development’s shoppers’ entrance on Fenham Hall Drive. Within 400 yards of the site is a range of shops and services including general purpose store, newsagents, doctors surgery, library and swimming pool. A wider range of shops can be found on Two Ball Lonnen, whilst Newcastle City Centre, is within 4 miles.

On the banks of the River Tyne, the vibrant City of Newcastle is a delightful mix of the historic and modern renowned for its excellent shopping facilities, attractive architecture and wide range of festivals and art events throughout the year. The quayside area has seen major redevelopment over the last few years with the Sage and Baltic centres making a major contribution to the cultural expansion of the area." Show less
