“Newcastle's Quayside”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

what more can you ask for ...culture, scenery, wonderful walks, lovely people, pubs, restaurants and the some of the best views to photograph in the City.
This is a lovely clean area to visit, you can walk over the bridges to Gateshead Quay, enjoy the Baltic and Sage. On sunday there is the Quayside Market, although not as large as it once was it does make for a nice stroll along the riverbank taking in the various craft stalls and different traders.

Great architecture and history. There is a sense of belonging when you walk along the quay side and a sense of greta industrial history.

“Brilliant Area”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

Plenty of restaurants, great views from The Baltic Centre Viewing platform. Seeing the Millenium Bridge lifting for river traffic and how pretty it looks lit up at night. Lovely to walk right along the quayside, great Sunday market here too. Brilliant bus service on both sides of Quays to town centre and elsewhere with terrific value £2 day ticket.
