If you like traditional butchers and fruit and veg shops, then this is worth a visit. If you like a posh café or a no frills café its well worth an hour of your time.

If you are in town make sure you walk through the fantastic Central Arcade. Amazing early 20th century architecture.

Grainger Town has so much to offer - the market is superb and Central Arcade is a place of real beauty. Great Architecture and great acoustics for the buskers playing outside Windows music shop.

Great place to see in the middle of Newcastle! Grainger market is also a wonderful place to see with plenty of fresh produce & other stalls. Great shoe shop in the middle of the market!

In the heart of Newcastle, the amazing architecture from 1906 well preserved makes the central arcade a trip into history...

All sorts of products from fresh meat from proper butchers, fruit and veg sellers, vintage clothing and shoe makers,... More
