The choice of shops includes Throckley Minimarket, a convenience store ten minutes walk from Meadow Hill that provides grocery, newsagent, and off-licence services until 9pm seven days a week. The large Sainsbury store around half a mile away incorporates Throckley post office, and there are several other convenience stores, off-licences, hairdressers and food takeaways in the village and a wider choice around Newburn High Street, a mile and a half away. Newburn also has a community-run Activity Centre with a gym, a climbing wall and a range of children’s activities.
Throckley has a wealth of open green spaces and woods both within and surrounding the village, including the delightful Walbottle Dene, a tract of ancient woodland and wildlife habitats that is a favourite area for walkers and runners. A few minutes walk from Meadow Hill there is a large park with an equipped play area, and a little further to the south lie Riverside Country Park and the River Tyne, with Ryton Willows nature reserve on the southern bank, accessed via the Newburn Bridge. The village has several pubs, two social clubs and a cricket club, and the many nearby golf courses include the prestigious Close House club, two miles to the west.
