The C103 is a short urban road in north Newcastle upon Tyne. It begins at the north edge of the Town Moor on the A189 and runs north as Kenton Road, with the C103 number appearing on a couple of route confirmation signs on traffic islands. The road bears slightly left at a large roundabout and continues through suburbia before meeting the A191 which comes in from the right at another roundabout. The A-road multiplexes north along Kenton Road before turning left at traffic lights.

Passing under the Tyne and Wear Metro at Wansbeck Road Station

The C103 resumes at this point and continues along Kenton Road. It crosses the C105 Jubilee Road at traffic lights and continues onto Wansbeck Road, which passes under the Tyne and Wear Metro's eponymous station before ending at a mini-roundabout where the two other arms carry the C104.
