Standing at Grey's Monument looking down at the sweep of Grey Street's sand coloured Georgian mansions as they descend towards the Tyne is probably one of the most spectacular city views in England - if you haven't seen it, I urge you to experience it while out shopping at the nearby Eldon Square.

It was nice that everything was in one place, although if you like more traditional pubs then grey street can be a bit trendy

Very easy access on foot with access at the top end from Monument Metro station. Occasional markets held at the top near Greys Monument are a welcome addition. Follow Grey Street down and... More

Love this street but maybe not for anyone with walking disabilities. The street had a christmas market at the top of it, brilliant atmosphere. The street is lined with resturants and bars. Very popular street in Newcastle.

This is a part of granger town laid out years ago and is stated as the best Georgian street in the world. Walk up and down marvelling at the impressive buildings. Look up the side streets to hidden gems of pubs, night clubs even casinos. Look at the restaurants jewellery shops and the magnificent theatre royal. Make sure you walk... More

Crowds out enjoying themselves, beautiful windows...it is one of the best experiences at Newcastle, especially at night. Take a walk, take your time, drop in for a bite, and enjoy a... More

Grey street is such a delight, the jewel in Newcastles's crown. This street would grace any major city. Not a great deal of shopping but lots of entertainment, food & drinks. A must if you visit Newcastle

With the beautiful historic buildings and the amount of places to eat and drink - this is our favourite street in newcastle. We often visit late afternoon, have a couple of drinks then something to eat. There are plenty of places to choose from with Browns being our favourite. People who visit these establishments are usually a more mature crowd,... More
