I lived in Newcastle for quite some time, while working between there and Florida. It was a neat little town. I had a lot of people warn me before I moved that the British weren't so friendly, but I found the exact opposite in Newcastle! Overall, this is a neat area to see if you're just touring around Newcastle.

The most beautiful architectural street in Newcastle. John Dobson designed it, now restored, with shops, restaurants, pavement cafes and businesses including the immaculate Victorian Theatre Royal. Leads from the Earl Grey monument in the vibrant shopping city centre downhill in a graceful curve to the famous Quayside. Walk down, bus uphill if you like.

Grey Street is located right at the city centre, at the end of it there's the Grey's Monument, and on the other direction the street turns into Dean Street at some point. Absolutely beautiful architecture! Just remember to look up! It was once voted the best street in the UK, and I can totally understand why. Lots of restaurants, cafes... More

Grey Street is an achitectural gem but don't lose the context - continue down the hill and it becomes Dean Street, and the architecture continues to impress as you get nearer the quayside, with a startling juxtaposition of mediaeval, neo-classical, Victorian, Georgian and early 20th century building and civil engineering. The trick is always to LOOK UP! as the real... More

Remember to look up and see the brilliant carvings and ornate domes. Read the Heritage signs, I hadn't appreciated quite how important Newcastle was historically.
