The developed quayside of Newcastle and Gateshead is a visitor's 'must'. With the beautiful Sage music venue and Baltic art gallery on the Gateshead side, just a short stroll across the Millenium 'winking' bridge, there are numerous nice bars and restaurants on the Newcastle side for an afternoon drink or snack. On Sunday, the Quayside Market is worth a visit... More

Recalling the stench from the River Tyne in the 1960s it is now much more salubrious. Interesting mixture of old and new buildings, wonderful view of the seven bridges. All I miss is the Quayside railway.

Great place to walk on a lazy Sunday afternoon, great views, lots of people all enjoying themselves. Plenty of places for a relaxing drink or two!

Free, lush, tranquil and as great at night as it is in the daytime, it may not be Syndey Habour bridge proportions, but it an't half close.

Stayed in Hotel at Quayside for weekend break. Enjoyed walking along the Quayside particularly in the evening when all the bridges were lit up. Lots going on and a great atmosphere. Very good Market held on Sunday mornings too.

Things are great by the side of the river. Good walks, interesting bridges to cross, lots of eating and drinking places. Livens up at weekends and at night, so take the kids during the day. The Contemporary Art Galley, near the MIllennium Bridge has some "different" exhibits.

we stayed at a hotel on the Quayside. You have excellent views of the river and all the bridges in that area. On Sunday morning there was a market which we weren't expecting. A few more benches to sit and admire the view and buildings would have been appreciated

A great atmosphere, especially on a Sunday morning with the market. Some really nice views and bars, felt safe walking around even late at night.
