We visited during a Saturday evening and were really impressed with the choice of bars and restaurants. The atmosphere was friendly and whilst taking photographs a passerby took a group photo for us which made our night. Loved it round here and dished we had been visiting for longer.

By day or night it is a lovely atmosphere here. On a Sunday there is a market alongside the quay side and at ight it's a great view: look for the ship in a bottle (the Sage) and see the majestic bridges' reflections on the great Tyne. Iconic!

We really enjoyed visiting this area. Luckily we were there on sunny days which added to our enjoyment. There are many coffee shops and pubs in this area as well as some great restaurants. Parking is also available at a nearby car park. The little beach areas which have been set up are perfect for children to build sand castles.... More

The area is great to explore. The Baltic Art Gallery has a variety of art exhibitions to see. The Sage is an interesting building, just a good place for a coffee or a concert in the evening. There are a variety of restaurants and coffee bars.

I remember the quayside in the 90's and 00's it was awesome. It all went quiet down there as the diamond strip took over main nightlife but the quayside is back big style...fab views, restaurants, bars defo worth a visit.
