Stunning Architecture and fancy shops line both sides of the street, follow the street down to the Quayside.

Grey Street has changed quite a lot since I moved here in 1976. The buildings are still impressive. The Theatre Royal still remains the gem of Grey Street. There are now an increasing number of bars and restaurants, and one gentlemen's club tucked away down an alley. For me, the view looking down Grey Street lost 'something' when they demolished...

Grey Street's Georgian architecture is a most impressive and awesome path leading down to the Quayside; continue down on to Dean Street for more glorious buildings before coming to the north side base of the Tyne Bridge. The street is now lined with middle-to-upper market chain restaurants as well as (some overpriced) bars and also a few shops here and... More

Really nice street to explore, especially the side streets. Not sure it lives up to the hype, but still very much worth a stroll.

This street as everything. Great bars, great restaurants, excellent coffees houses - young lovely ladies everywhere. Made me wish I was 26 instead of 76. .

Grey street is on a hill. It is wide and absolutely packed with good quality bars and resttaurants. It really has got a great buzz at any time of the day or night.

Great place to walk down as there are now many good restaurants and pubs to chose from but don't forget to also look up the side street off the main drag as there are also great places

I loved the nosy coloured sweep down to the Quayside - itself a place to visit - and all the nooks and corners. Look above the shop fronts, and you will see that the buildings in the area are a very healthy collection of the interesting, the classically beautiful, Art Deco, some mediaeval and some modern. I didn't expect so... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful streets in the world! It's like a Parisian boulevard. I love to walk it's length & imagine the history, soak up the architecture & fantasise about having an amazing apartment high up in one of the stunning Georgian buildings. Come on Newcastle - you could make so much more of this... More

In the centre of the city and architecturally gorgeous. The most beautiful street in Newcastle without quarrel, perhaps in the entire country.
