Best street in the UK

Love the theatre and the Tyneside cinema which is down a side street. Blakes is good for coffee and breakfast.

My friend and myself went there as its right over the road to the Theatre Royal and the meals we had were delicious. I had the Lasagna which came straight out the oven freshly cooked and it was the tastiest I've ever had. My friend had the "fish finger sarnie" which was fresh strips of cod deep fried in batter...

Great place to spend an evening or indeed an afternoon! Excellent choices of restaurants and bars whether it's Italian,Japanese, South American or something a bit more traditional. Sunday lunch, afternoon tea or a boozy lunch all catered for. Can be loud and busy or quiet and romantic its up to you.

Grey street is a fantastic area to visit, you can start from the top at greys monuments and work your way down to the quayside or work up from the quayside to greys monument, I would advise you start at the top, the theatre Royal is right at the top and you are spoilt with the selection of bars and...

My favourite street ever. I love the way the buildings curve down towards the river and the architecture is stunning. Nothing better on a sunny day
