Imaginatively restored and developed quayside. Pleasant, quiet and pedestrian only area with great views of the iconic Tyne and Millennium Bridges.

The Quayside has improved immensely over the years and is now a good place to wine and dine both at lunchtime and in the evenings. It is a good place for a walk and National Cycle Route 72 travels alongside. There is also the option of crossing the Millennium Bridge to Gateshead

The Quayside should not be missed when visiting Newcastle. It offers some fantastic views of the Sage and the Baltic and of course the famous bridges. You can have a pleasant stroll alongside the river, there are even sundecks for relaxing near the Millennium Bridge. I saw a lot of cyclists too. Some nice places for a coffee during the... More

I've always had a nice meal here and I love stowford press cider and its one of the few places in Newcastle to serve it so that will always get a plus off me

Excellent for a leisurely stroll or a jog with a magnificent view of the many bridges in Newcastle. Go to the pitcher and piano for a quick drink or just walk across the bridge to to visit the sage. Check out the Sunday market too.

I work quite close to The Quayside, and on the odd busy day, i'll take a stroll down and walk along. The fresh air, the noise, the view and the serenity add to a fantastic place and just leaning against the bars and looking out can really give one peace. There are some fabulous restaurants, a few bars and pubs,... More

We went to the Quayside to see our Niece compete in the Junior Great North Run. This event was well supported and the quayside looked good. This was followed by the Great North Games. There are so many places to eat and drink within a few yards of the quayside you can not go wrong. Great place in a great... More

Though we didn't try them the restaurants were all busy, some with outdoor seating. The view of the 'Big River' and it's many bridges is a sight to remember. Lovely area, much improved from when I was last there. Watch out for the bus lanes and the one way streets.

Had not been home for 10 years and fondly recalled the quayside as a tatty run down area with a fantastic Sunday market. The area has been completely renovated with new buildings and old architecture now refurbished sit side by side. We sat in the sunshine and drank coffee and just admired all the iconic bridges. The Millenium Bridge (or... More
