A definite must see when in Newcastle. Dubbed Tyneside classical, the buildings are magnificent! Lots to see here, beautiful buildings, Grey's street, Grey's monument, shopping centre, Grainger market and restaurants.

Loved the variety in Grainger Town and I wished we had something similar in the Netherlands. Great to see little entrepreneurs are able to survive. Loved the old building real class and style.

Located near the Eldon square in town centre. Comprises an eclectic mixture of antique and quaint shops.

A great part of town, with a range of shops in gorgeous old buildings. A good range of designer and quirky individual shops.

Newcastle is a busy city full of life and modern buildings towering over beautiful period buidlings, so it was such lovely surprise to stumble upon this little gem! Grainger Town is one of the dazzling jewels in our crown, with classical architecture designed in the 1830s by the internationally renowned Richard Grainger.

Beautiful flooring, some interesting shops. Looks a lot better than all those modern malls with the usual chain stores.
