The Boldons (NE35, NE36) are a group of three small villages in the North East of England – East Boldon, West Boldon and Boldon Colliery – bordering the North of Sunderland, East of Newcastle and the south of South Shields and Jarrow. The Boldons form part of the suburban fringe of South Tyneside and are completely surrounded by green belt, with conservation areas within the historic village centres of East and West Boldon. Despite the relatively small geographical area, there are a significant number of older buildings considered as being of architectural merit including churches, public houses and former country houses. In recent years The Boldens have benefited from development: with the expansion of the local ASDA, a new state of the art secondary school, and the introduction of the Metro light rapid transit system connecting Boldon to the rest of Tyne & Wear.
The Boldens showcase a mix of traditional and new build homes, with areas perfect for families, young professionals and students. The average asking price for a residential property in Bolden Colliery is £161,782, with an average rent price of £1,118 pcm.
The boldens are located on the A19 connecting them with the north and south of the UK, off the A19 is the A184 running west to Newcastle.
A Metro station in East Bolden runs along the green line, running directly through to Sunderland, Newcastle and Newcastle Airport.
The nearest major airport is Newcastle Airport, about 13 miles away.
