How much renting or buying a flat in Newcastle's Hadrian's Tower costs

FANCY living in a skyscraper? Homes in arguably one of the region's most impressive postcodes are selling for hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Luxurious pads in the 27-storey Hadrian's Tower in Newcastle City Centre have hit the online property sites - with one costing half a million.

The enormous tower, which saw its first tenants and occupants move in at the turn of the year, has become well-known across the region for its distinctive looks.

It has also become quite the destination as it houses the region's highest cocktail bar and restaurant, which opened for the first time last month.

But soaring a whopping 272 ft into the North East skyline, those lucky enough to secure a property will be treated to a 24-hour concierge, coffee bar and importantly, views.

But how much will a flat in Hadrian's Tower set you back?

We've looked at the property sites to see just how much some of the flats cost to buy (and rent).

As you'd might expect, the price is dependent on how high up you are and the number of bedrooms in the flat.

One bedroom flat - £172,000
