I may be biased, because I am a Geordie by birth, but Grey Street is surely one of the most beautiful streets in England, and if it comes to it, the architecture of the entire city is breathtaking!

We always love walking up and down Grey Street. You can feel the history as you gaze at the many impressive buildings that grace this wide thoroughfare. We were so impressed we walked it several times during our stay in Newcastle, fortunately there are quite a few places offering refreshment along the way! Don't miss the Theatre Royal, possibly our... More

Had a fantastic trip to Newcastle. The city was amazing and plenty to do and see. Restaurants in abundance, everything you can think of ten have. Bars, wine bars and pubs everywhere. All very well presented, clean and tidy.

We were blessed with beautiful to adore this place. It is best viewed from the monument building and the facade is well maintained and preserved. You gradually make your way down to Quayside from here

This street must have more restaurants + bistros per square foot than anywhere else in the UK! Blown away by the variety and Quality of the eateries here.
