The Quayside of old was busy, vibrant and fun - it seems so very subdued now with restaurants and bars closing, especially around the Copthorne area, however we did not venture much further up the river so there may have been a different atmosphere there.

We were staying very close to the quayside and were able to view the New Year fireworks from the High Level Bridge. The quayside is quite spectacular after dark with the Millennium Bridge and Sage lit up.

Been to Newcastle on a night out a few times and The Quayside is a great place to start. Cheap food and drinks, lovely chilled atmosphere and views of the tyne.

As a 'geordie' it is nice to see the quayside being regenerated with new bars etc being opened. The one problem they will all probably have is that they get greedy with the prices they charge customers for drink. In My opinion that was one of the things that caused the initial decine in 'footfall' to the quayside.

Day and night, Quayside is worth a stroll, sit or stand. There are the new buildings to look at, the bridges to cross, the restaurants to eat at or people watch and the activity on the water to watch.

This is a nice place to walk down in the summer next to the river as well as grab a bite to eat or have a look into the market, It is also pretty decent for starting a night out with various decent pubs and bars.

The Quayside is the best part of Newcastle; not as busy as the City Centre with a selection of good pubs, theatre and restaurants. Cycle, walk or run...it's flat...! And the iconic bridges......

If visiting Newcastle the Quayside is a must - visit day and night to appreciate it. At night it is sensational with the bridges and Sage all lit up. Sunday market is worth an amble though it is not on the scale it once was but on a nice morning makes for a good outing taking in the Millenium Bridge... More
