Really enjoyed an afternoon stroll along the river at the Quayside. I was there on a Sunday, and there are some street vendors along the pathways between the Tyne bridge and Millennium Bridge. I am pleased that the area is bustling with activities but not crowded. Along the river, there are many scenic views for photo taking. Don't forget to... More

I've lived in Newcastle all of my life and have always considered myself, especially over the last few years as its become more popular, lucky to live here! The Quayside is very pretty and always kept clean. On the Gateshead side you have the Baltic Art Gallery and the Sage, if Music and Art are your kind of thing. On... More

I exercised a lot and love to run along the quay as the view are breathtaking. Definitely a must for those who hates the confinement of gyms.

Fantastic part of the city. Great bars and cafes and the market on Sunday was really good too. Nice walks on both sides of the water and the millennium bridge is really impressive too!

The quayside is a great place, the views of the bridges are beautiful both day and night. Lovely walks along the river,Sunday market, and lovely cruises. A lovely little coffee shop overlooking the river is fan.

Beautiful part of Newcastle to walk down! Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. Not far from the train station and in easy view of famous landmarks.

On a Summer's day there is nothing nicer than walking along the Quayside. The bridges and The Sage are a must to see. The restaurants/bars a lovely and the prices are not that bad. Go further and walk up to the Big Market. There are plenty of bars for the young (and not so young) or walk past the cobbles... More

When I were kid, the quayside was a rat infested no-go zone, derelict and smelly. I regret not buying a couple of acres of it in 1980, as the transformation since then would mean I wouldn't have to write reviews as I'd be loaded. But I didn't, other people did, and now the whole area is alive with restaurants, bars,... More
