Grey street has to be one of the most popular streets in Newcastle. It has fabulous architecture and many fine bars and restaurants no matter what your taste. It also boasts the Theatre Royal with shows which would meet any taste.

Lots of good bars and eateries in this street. A lovely bit of Newcastle for those who are past their wild days but still like to party with a good few drinks!

A dramatic sweep of great architecture populated by great bars and restaurants,take a peak in to Dacantus and Bar Luga. The franchises have found it as well but never the less still a great venue. Coming down the street from Grey's Monument there are great traditional pubs and eateries either side.For the less adventurous be careful if turning right as... More

This street needs to be walked in both directions and should be appreciated from 1st floor level upwards. The gracious sweep down from Greys Monument down to the quayside is a sight to behold. Try to see the street early in the day with fewer visitors so you can take your time to observe the architectural details and symmetry of... More

Someone once called this the most beautiful street in Europe and I haven't seen a nicer one. It's full of expansive chain restaurants now, but if you look up above the facades it's lovely.

Grey Street has some of the best architecture in Newcastle. The old buildings make up part of Newcastle Character. You will Find the Theatre Royal at the top of Grey Street which is very grand. There are lots of new and old restaurants lining Grey street which are worth visiting. There are also lots of street leading off of Gey... More
