for me Grainger Town is all about Grainger market... and Grainger Market is all about the Pizza! Great pizza by the slice stall with customers queueing up all day (lots of Italian customers who must know good pizza). Of the rest of the Market, the highlights are the fresh meat and fish.

The market in Grainger town is one of my favourite places to visit in the town. The variety of stalls is excellent. You would struggle to rival the quality and price of the butchers and fish mongers. The market itself is clean and characterful with a nice area to sit down for a drink or bite to eat.

Elegant buildings. Streets with a great selection of bars and restaurants. Lots to see and do. Start at Greys Monument and walk down the hill.

Aww, if you like markets, then this is one where you will find all sorts of things. The fruit and veg is fresh. I bought my breakfast fruit from here - it was very cheap and quite fresh. There are stalls where they make traditional English sandwiches or buns. I took a bun with a mix of cheddar, carrots, mayo... More

Wow, what more can I say, this place sells everything, it was quite busy which was good to see, not many places like this about. We just had a quick look round but we will go back again next time we visit newcastle.

What a place - so much to see and do, enjoy, inspect and admire. Well worth a visit. The true heart of this great proud city. I had a few oysters at the fish stalls, whitebait and a drink and then a crepe at La Petite Creperie and enjoyed chatting with the French boy running it. Wish my Francais was... More

Granger Town is a historical central area of Newcastle and was the brainchild of Richard Grainger. Comprising of the Theatre Royal, Grey Street and Grainger Street, to name a few, this area has some beautiful architecture. However the area around Grainger Street and Grey Street is a shopping section and all of the ground levels have, over the years, become... More
