I do love the Quayside, i think it's especially pretty by Night as it's all lit up. Always a busy place with so many attractions, the Sage, Baltic, countless restaurants & bars. Or perhaps a great place for a jog, walk the dog or a romantic stroll. So many walkways & always something to see. I think it's an extremely... More

Nice for a stroll if the weather is bright, very very windy glasses where being blown off tables. Dont understand why the restaurants didn't offer plastic glasses to those wanting to be seated outside!! other than that worth a visit - not spectacular though.

I love the Quayside, it's got some lovely eateries and views. The bridges are great and the night life is well worth the cold.

from Tudor buildings to the award winning blinking eye Millenium bridge, the Quayside is is a magnificent blend of 500 years of history. A Mecca for drinkers at the weekend wanting party fun and good food, shoppers wanting an old fashioned outdoor market {Sunday am} to history buffs tracing the areas roots back almost 900 years,this area has it all.

A spectacular scenic part of newcastle's history, go on a Sunday when the famous market is on & less business traffic.
