The market has loads to offer, from grocery, butcher shops, cafes, restaurants (chinese, seafood, italian, french, etc), general shops (clothing, shoes, gifts,etc), tea shops, etc. Overall a good market especially to buy fresh meat, fruits and have some freshly cooked food.

I had no previous knowledge of Newcastle and I was delighted to see such splendid buildings in the centre of Newcastle. There are many national chains in this area.

The Grainger Town is a very good area for shopping, with lots of interesting shops and the large indoor market is excellent with so much variety of market stalls and a great cafe/eating area inside the market itself

Plenty of places to stop... More

Grainger town has some fine neoclassical houses, but most people will come here for the shops during the day and the restaurants and bars in the evening. The center of Grainger Town is ofcourse the Grey Monument. There is always something happening around this monument.

This appears to be the hub of the central area, including quite a large market, home to the original Marks and Spencer penny bazaar. Numerous types of shops, too numerous to list.

Some of Newcastle upon Tyne's finest buildings and streets lie within the Grainger Town area of the City centre including Grainger Market and Theatre Royal. They are all tall Georgian and Victorian buildings well worth viewing. Their is also an abundance of bars and restaurants and is a great place for shopping.

Hidden away are some fantastic shops, market stalls (seasonal) and a beautiful area. Newcastle itself has some fantastic areas and shops and it just keeps going. It is a must visit for any and all people.
