Leazes Terrace

Leazes Terrace is a Grade I listed building, built c1830 by Richard Grainger and designed by architect Thomas Oliver, and is one of the best examples of terraced residences in the country. The majority being in the ownership of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and used as Halls of Residence. However, several properties on the north east side remain in private ownership.

It overlooks Leazes Park and is in the mighty shadow of St James' Park the home of Newcastle United Football Club. The buildings themselves are the reason why St James Park has a lop-sided look to it as development of the east side of the ground was restricted due to the effect it would have had on these beautiful houses.

I lived in Leazes terrace in 1952 as a 4 year old I used to sit on the wall outside my house and the football fans used to pass to go into the ground they used to give me sweets and pennies...now it is not safe to sit there alone as a child which is sad.

Lucky you, it looks a lovely place to live even now and if you got out onto the roof you could watch the match for free! That's before the East stand was built in the 70's anyway.

I was'nt aware that it's not safe around there. I thought it would be quite quiet seeing as how most of it is occupied by students.

I was living there as a student in 1976-77 - loved it and so close to the city centre nightlife
