World-class art galleries, vibrant nightlife and excellent market shopping - all just five minutes from central Newcastle
Quayside was once a major industrial hub for ships arriving along the Tyne river. It still draws the masses but is now more renowned for nightlife and art than for barges and shipping containers. You’ll discover a neighborhood thoroughly revitalized into a modern environment complete with contemporary galleries, live music venues, al-fresco dining and historic markets. Not to mention the city’s best views of the seven distinctive bridges straddling the river.
Living near the Tyne also means living near the social hubs of the city. On one bank you’ll have everything from high-end bars and relaxed pubs to photography galleries and comedy shows, while on the other you’ll have access to world-renowned modern art and free tours at the BALTIC Centre. When the weather is in your favor, a walk along the banks of the Tyne offers stunning views of the city’s famed seven bridges, which light up beautifully at sunset. Numerous bars and restaurants provide an ideal place to soak up the scene.
Along with plenty of brick-and-mortar shops, you’ll also be conveniently located to the Quayside Sunday Market, an eclectic collection of stalls running along the river. Attracting an estimated 100,000 people each week, the market is one of the largest in England and offers bargains on everything from plants and produce to crafts and paintings.
Best of all, you can walk through the city to be at Newcastle and Northumbria universities in just 15 minutes. Hop on a bus to get there even quicker.
