North East

The North East stretches from Northumberland in the North to Teesside in the South of the region and is home to three cities; Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham. As one of the UK’s fastest growing economies, its highly-skilled, flexible workforce, connectivity to global markets and low cost base are a powerful combination. It also boasts more than 30 miles of beaches, a galapagos of islands and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
