Fenham is an area of the west end of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It lies to the west of the city centre, and is bounded on the north and east by a large area of open land known as the Town Moor. To the south lies Benwell, whilst West Denton lies to the west, Blakelaw and Cowgate to the north, and Arthur's Hill and Spital Tongues to the east. The area has an ethnically mixed population, and is also home to a large number of students.

The area covers two wards of Newcastle: Wingrove Ward, and Fenham Ward. At the 2001 Census the overall population was found to be 22,376 of whom 14.4 per cent belonged to an ethnic minority, more than twice the average for Newcastle as a whole. Of persons age 16-74, 52.3 per cent were defined as economically active, compared with 58.5 per cent for the city as a whole.
