Newcastle Under Lyme is a market town in North Staffordshire situated 40 miles south of Manchester and 40 miles north-west of Birmingham and directly adjoins Stoke-on-Trent. The town has a population of over 75,000 and has become a very popular choice for students to study, due to Keele University. This University was founded in 1949 and is the UK’s largest campus University combining research facilities and science park.

Newcastle Under Lyme is a mixture of a vibrant centre with young people enjoying the bars and cafés, and an ancient market town famous for not being Stoke on Trent. It has a market 6 days a week and the famous amusement park, Alton Towers is not far away.

The property is well located on the South side of the pedestrianised Ironmarket in the heart of the town centre in Newcastle Under Lyme. Ironmarket is just off the A52 which links Newcastle Under Lyme and Stoke on Trent and is close to the M6 motorway. Nearby occupiers include Coral, HSBC, New Look, Wilkinson, Scotts, BetFred, Café Nero and Halifax and the Yates Public House amongst many others.
