Review of Grey Street
Pending review
This street is so architecturally beautiful. It links the Quayside and the main shopping area of Newcastle. The Grade I listed Theatre Royal is there too. It is a steep walk up a wide street.

In my opinion one of the best streets in the UK, architecturally speaking. Walk from the bottom up to the monument to get the best experience - the steep incline and the gentle curve adds to its charm, somehow!

Grey Street is one of the main roads leading from the Grey Monument

It takes you down the hill towards the River Tyne. There are a number of art galleries and restaurants on the road.

The architecture on this street is stunning. The Theatre Royal is on the road and lots of other beautiful buildings.

Greys club, went into the toilets and have a bouncer jump to look over the door of the toilet when I had locked it. When I confronted him he left and Ignored me, the spray guy also ignored me after this. Unacceptable really, privacy invaded and he also saw my privates.

The architecture is amazing on this street especially the beautiful colours of the stone work. If you come to Newcastle you need to visit this part of town.

Grey Street in Newcastle is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most beautiful streets in this city.
Constructed in the early Victorian era,around about the late 1830's ,the architecture along this street is so beautiful and diverse, running from the impressive Greys Monument down to Dean Street, some notable buildings along Grey Street include Theatre Royal ( 1837 ) Central Arcade ( 1906 ) and many more beautiful buildings.
The street was constructed by Richard Grainger and designed by John Dobson and when completed in 1837 was described by Prime Minister Gladstone as the finest modern street in the United Kingdom.
The street is a joy to walk down if you enjoy grand architecture but is also home to many pubs, bars and restaurants, its just a fabulous street, a street both myself and my twin brother Stephen really enjoyed visiting, its most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area or planning to visit Newcastle.

Dined here on a Monday evening. Thoroughly recommended!

Very large establishment with great mood lighting and polite friendly staff. Despite being a large restaurant, each table is situated discreetly from the next offering a sense of private dining.

We enjoyed Prawn Cocktail, Thai Fish Cakes followed by a Chicken Pizza and wonderfully fresh Battered Cod with Chils. We had a bit of room for Sticky Toffee Pudding and Lemon Cheesecake with fresh Fruits. All were wonderful!

Really highly rate this eatery. Well done to all involved.

Without a doubt one of the most splendid streets in the country. The way it sweeps down to the river is stunningly graceful. Particularly appreciate the improved priority for pedestrians. Stand at the top, just below the Monument for the best view.

This street is one that shows the prosperity of Newcastle that flowed form the docks and quays into he city above. Now very much lined with eateries and bars the facade above street level is lovely. Look closely and you see that there is a lot of empty property above. what a dreadful shame.
