About Grey Street And Grainger Town, Newcastle Upon Tyne
Richard Grainger was a 19th century builder and developer who created some of Newcastles most iconic buildings and streets. The areas he worked on are said to have a distinct style of Georgian architecture that’s been given its own name – Tyneside Classical. These cover Grainger Market, Theatre Royal, Clayton Street, Grainger Street and Grey Street.
Grey Street is known as one of the finest, most aesthetically pleasing streets in England. Shopping, fashion and jewellery boutiques fill the area. At the north of the Street, you’ll find the Grainger Monument, 130m column of stone with a statue on top.
You’ll also find the Gate, a retail and leisure complex with it’s own multiplex; and the Grainger Market, where there are a number of historical butcher’s stalls.
