Having remembered Tyne Commission Quay from the '70s, I'm sorry to see that all the old buildings have gone and replaced with many faceless apartments and trendy bars. It is still possible to find a good old pub in the Bridge Inn however. One they didn't demolish. Millennium Bridge is amazing, esp at night and the Sage is a fantastic... More

An amazing transformation of the old docks and warehouses into a lively, vibrant location. Attractive to all age groups during the day and especially the younger age group of adults at night. Some of the best restaurants in the City. Easy access across the Millennium Bridge to Gateshead side with more restaurants, arts centre and beautiful Sage concert halls/complex.

Trinity house where the 1st lighthouses were founded. to the new courts, to eating places which suit all tastes and budgets. Evening is also a delight but to view. the bridges light up and the places come alive. Pubs, nightclubs, what... More

The quayside has always been a place to escape the lunacy of the big market with an equally supported but slightly more subdued crowd, this is still the case but with more variety and food venues to compliment the considerable and well classed drinking places. the tranquil settings are proving an attraction to visitors by land and sea and the...

Went for a stroll along the river at dusk The lights began to come on to show off the bridges, a really good time to appreciate the area . Also plenty of watering holes to stop at . I tried a few on the quayside area and the atmosphere down there is good and popular ..
