Alexandra Guest House, Gateshead is conveniently located in the heart of North-East England.
Continue past Scotch Corner to the Washington Services (Approx 37 miles). Three hundred metres past the services the road splits into two. Follow the left hand lane signposted a1 Gateshead/Newcastle.
After the bend, move into the left hand lane (signposted A167, Gateshead South). This lane turns into a slip road heading onto a large roundabout. Take the third exit road, sign posted A167 Gateshead South. This road is duel carriageway and runs through Low Fell (shops at first followed by residential area).
At the second set of lights, at the cenotaph, continue along this road until you reach a set of traffic lights and turn left. At the junction my house is slightly to your right (opposite Gateshead Leisure Centre) and can be recognized with a white door and leaded windows.
Take the A1 (passing the MetroCentre on the left hand sided). After the MetroCentre take the third slip road off the A1, signposted Gateshead B1426.
Turn left on the dual carriageway, you will come to a mini-roundabout, bear left, still on the B1426. Follow the road under two small bridges through the first set of traffic lights. The road begins to climb, carry on straight through the second set of traffic lights and at the brow of the hill there is a bus lane and a third set of traffic lights.
Turn right at these traffic lights onto Coastsworth Road. Take the first left by the small corner shop; follow the road round bearing right. This is the start of Alexandra Road. Continue until you see Gateshead Leisure Centre on your left hand side. My house is on the right hand side more of less opposite the swimming pool, the house can be recognised by the leaded windows.
