A lot of stores and restaurants in this area. At the end ( or start ) you will find Grey's monument. Also at that point is the entrance to the metro system.

I love this street and it's amazing buildings like Theatre Royal. I'm sorry to see that Turks Head Hotel is no longer there and the damage done to old Mawson, Swan and Morgan is unforgivable.

At the heart of Grainger's Newcastle, this has to be one of the most impressive streetscapes in Britain and an example of town planning at its best.

Fabulous bars and nice places to eat. Recommend Las Iguana's for 2-4-1 cocktails - make mine a Mango Collins!

For those of you who identify Newcastle simply as the (St James Park) home of NUFC, or other Geordie timelines. Come to the city, take a moment on a pavement cafe or bar. Look up! See the glorious architecture. Enjoy.

The selection of Bars is unreal. Everybody having fun. High end bars with cliental to match. Superb. Browns, The Living Room and The Botanist are the highlights. But don't go there on a budget.
