Newland Avenue is a cultural hub, filled to the brim with fantastic, local-run restaurants, cafes, and bars, serving up fresh food and amazing drinks. I’ve been a Newland Avenue resident for around 6 years now; from moving into my first student house down Alexandra Road to today, Newland Avenue has been the backdrop for many great times in my life. You could spend a whole day eating, drinking, and shopping without even needing to leave the avenue. Newland Avenue has become on of my favourite places, and I recommend it to anyone who hasn’t been before.
