A credit to the city to preserve this most interesting selection of building reflecting some of the better periods of English architecture.

We were in Newcastle on a Sunday morning so almost everything was closed. That made it very easy to slowly stroll down Grey Street from the monument to the river. I had printed out a description of the most notable buildings and that added to our pleasure.

Dominated by Earl Grey's monument, this magnificently-designed and constructed carriageway with buildings deserves an altogether grander title than plain common-or-garden 'street'. At the highest point stands the magnificent columned facade to the Theatre Royal and, as the street proceeds gently downhill, restaurants, shops and wine bars abound in well-apportioned buildings in uniform grey stone. In my opinion - and I... More

It is a nice walk up and down Grey Street. The architecture is quiet nice, you pass the beautiful Theatre (go inside, it's very nice) and you end up in front of the Grey monument which is quiet impressive. The street itself is full of bars and restaurants and buzzing in the late afternoon and night.

Voted as the best architectural street in Europe a few years ago is understandable. The fabulous facade of the Theatre Royal and the buildings twisting down to the Quayside. Pubs include Harry's Bar which is a great place to meet but the food is not recommended (30 yrs and older). Barluga Champagne and Oyster Bar good food (30 yrs and... More

Just stand on the opposite side of the street to the Theatre Royal and look down towards the river - is that not just the most exquisite street? Where are the drain pipes..... hidden from view so that the buildings are not spoilt! Clever eh??

If you are stuck for somewhere to eat, then wander down Grey Street. Make sure you stop and just take in this beautiful street in the heart of the city. If you keep going to the bottom then you will end up at the River Tyne which is another iconic spot in Newcastle.
