A sunny March morning was an ideal time to stroll along the quay side and admire the Tyne, its bridges and some of the older buildings. The market offers a wide selection of food and crafts but for us the river and the history was the most interesting aspect of the quay.

The Quayside, while looking fantastic with the mix of old buildings, bridges and monuments, is a bit of a let down when you consider it's essentially just bars filled with hen parties. Many of the buildings are empty and left to ruin while the quayside market is filled with tat and food vendors. The walk along to Ouseburn is nice... More

We walked the Quayside during the day and in the evening and there are certainly some great characters to be seen. The restuarants and pubs in the area are of a wide range from the wotherspoon type place to the more up market hotel bars. There are certainly some wonderful views during the day and night and a must for... More

Market on a Sunday morning has lots of gifts type stalls and many street food stalls, from Flatbreads to donuts. Chips to churros. Something there for everyone

Fantastic warm atmosphere, both day and night! There's something for everyone. Enjoy a stroll along the riverside with amazing scenery and famous landmarks, or relax outside the modern bars and watch the world go by. The Tyne Bridge stands proud and looks spectacular when lit up at night, while the Millennium bridge is a great spot for taking photographs. The... More

Walked along the Quayside & found it a big let down. No quirky little shops bars or eateries. Just lifeless dirty & run down.

Nice walk on the quayside with a good atmosphere (on a Saturday), and a nice mixture of the different landmarks.
