It is great area full of fascinating places, such as the historic Grainger market, which still has one of Marks and Spencers original market stalls, and some great produce. Overall, there are too many atractions to list, it covers a large area.

Pizza slice place is delicious and cheap. I discovered it by following the smell and wasn't disappointed! Go have some!

An ancient (but sympathetically modernised) market where you can buy almost anything you can think of for a great price. I have noticed within the last couple of years it has certainly gone (up) market - I even noticed the guy from the cushion and curtain stall won come dine with me last week – now that’s what I call...

Grainger Town is often considered to be the historic heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. There are loads of magnificent and beautiful buildings in this area, so much to look at (just remember to look up to fully appreciate the buildings, the street level view of course isn't half as nice). Be sure to walk on Grey Street and pay a... More

The market's really lovely. Wide selection of shops, nice architecture, close to a metro station. But I was sent here for the pizza and it did not disappoint. The pizza slice place is gorgeous. Real italian. Delicious. Bargain. Not a sit down place, you receive your food on a paper plate - in hindsight, I don't like that cause I'm... More

The Grainger MARKET is an eclectic (well almost) collection of traditional traders. Some good food places have popped up in recent years. Plus many butchers and bakers after your custom. If visiting the Cty worth popping in to experience it. Only a 2 minute walk from Monument. Closed Sundays. Believe it or not the local paper covered the fact that... More
