There are interesting stories behind many place names, but Wallsend is particularly intriguing. This is where Hadrian’s Wall comes to an end, hence Walls End – quite literally! Almost 44,000 people live in the area, which is in Tyne and Wear. If you ever needed an injury solicitor in Wallsend, your best bet would be to go to nearby Newcastle, which is only around 3.5 miles away.
Many residents find the need to go to Newcastle, perhaps to do some shopping, for example. While there are many facilities in Wallsend for residents and visitors to make use of, a visit to a large city can make sense at times.
Taking public transport
While some might drive to the city from Wallsend, others will probably use public transport. The good news is there are plenty of options available for doing this. Buses, trains and taxis all represent good ways of getting around, which means lots of people will not have the need of a car at all.
Public transport is usually quite safe to use, thanks to the diligence and dedication of all those who work hard to make it so. The drivers in particular work hard to drive safely, no matter what vehicle they are in. Of course, you can never be certain of the people you will meet on the roads, and what they may do that could cause an accident to happen. You may not even see what happens, but you can still sustain injuries in the process.
