The most beautiful street in Newcastle

Not only is it stunning in terms of architecture but the choice of bars and restaurants is first rate. My favourite place in Newcastle :) especially on sunny days.

Of course, George Street in Edinburgh takes some beating. But the elegant Grey Street runs it close. The architecture is only marred by the fact that not all of the properties are fully utilised or occupied. We've tried all of the bars and most of the restaurants on and just off the street. The clientele is completely different from the... More

I've always been a big fan of this stylish crescent that sweeps down from the monument towards the quayside. If your stay is short in the Newcastle vicinity, then this area has it all. It's packed with restaurants, bars and theatre. The Eldon Square mall sprawls at the top of Grey Street and part way down, High Bridge street bisects... More

The architecture of Grey Street is amazing, and some of the restaurants are very good. Last time I was there a car show was on, and I will be back at the show this year... Great fun! 8th&9th July 2017.

Most people will wander down Grey Street from the Monument metro station, so named because of the monument to the 2nd Earl Grey that... More

I love Grey Street. At the top stands Greys Monument and you look down towards the Theatre Royal and all the beautiful buildings. The street is lined with cafes, bars and restaurants and a few shops too. Its a lovely place to spend an afternoon or evening

Gorgeous street, full of life and vibrancy. The walk down to the Quayside/up to Monument is lovely, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to pop into on the way.
