Grey Street is a beautiful old street in Newcastle with gorgeous architecture, leading from the centre of town towards the river and quayside. Home to the Theatre Royal and numerous bars, restaurants, shops and other commercial premises it's a crying shame not to wander down and admire the 'main vein' of 'the toon'

Elegant and impressive street well worth visiting for the elegant architecture. Walk all the way down towards the Quayside and visit Bessie Surtee's House just opposite the Guildhall - very romantic story and an English Heritage freebie!

Grey Street was spectacular as streets go, the buildings are big and bold with carvings everywhere. They are kept in extremely good condition and look really good in a photo, can't fault it, brilliant.

I know a lot of people have reviewed Grey Street and covered the architecture, but it truly is beautiful, fascinating and amazing. The buildings are fantastically beautiful, the monument is (wait for it) monumental, and even just taking a brisk walk down the street, you will truly appreciate the beauty of this area. There are good pubs, shops, delis -... More

What is there not to say about Grey Street, The Earl's monument gazing down a street lined on both sides by amazing buildings, not least of all the Theatre Royal of course. As with so much of Newcastle it's easy to miss how stunning the buildings are because there is just so much to look at all around you.

I've visited Newcastle Upon Tyne many times and my favourite place in the city center is Grey Street. It runs South from Grey Monument with lots of cafes, pubs, restaurants and lovely shops.It's so relaxing to sit and enjoy the sunshine there watching the beautiful architecture. It was built in the 1830s. It's a must to see in the capital... More

For architecture nuts, this is supposed to be one of the outstanding streets in England, and I imagine that to be correct.

Grey Street is the best street in Newcastle, bar none. It is classy, elegant and interesting and one of my favourites places to be. I have lost count of the number of cafes, restaurants and bars there are which all have outdoor seating areas so the hardworking Geordies can sit back and relax and enjoy the sunshine. Right in the... More
