Been there numerous times... for the weekly vegetable shopping and of course to buy some fresh coffee for my machine. Prices much lower in comparison with chain supermarkets. Meat section also much appreciated.

As a school kid growing up in Newcastle "JG WIndows" the record shop in the arcade off Grainger Street was "the" place to listen to and buy the latest records. It was fantastic to go back after 50 years to see that JG Windows are still there are the architecture of the arcade is beautiful. Sad to say I never... More

Lovely buildings great architecture. Beautiful area with mainly listed buildings built in 1824-1841. This area is a conservation area. There's Grainger market, theatre royal & The Edwardian central arcade. This reminds me off Leeds & Spa towns!

Grainger Town is nestled inbetween the building and modern day shops in the historic heart of Newcastle. It was developed by Richard Grainger a builder and developer between 1824 and 1841. Some of Newcastles finest buildings are in Grainger Town including Grainger Market and the Dominican Friary, Some pieces of the town wall also remain. Lovely Victorian and Georgian buildings...

During our visit we spent hours strolling around this wonderful area. Leaving the Central Station and walking up Grey Street we got our first glimpse of the archetypal architectural features that are famous. One of the finest is the Theatre Royal, a marvellous institution. We walked around the Grainger Market, colourful and thriving. All kinds of food are for sale... More

This place is alright and there is a decent range of shops but compared to Thornton Arcades and the Victoria Quarter in Leeds is a bit off. The building itself is great and almost worth coming just for that.
