The QuaysideCurrently Open
Newcastle is on the north bank of the River Tyne. The Quayside Riverside Walk is everything good about the North Side. Bars, pubs, nightclubs and restaurants line the street; it’s a housing development area (meaning that it’s not tourist trap); the arts and music scene here is thriving; and there’s lots of seating all along the Quayside, set up by local businesses to draw in the crowd. Two important buildings here are the 1766 Customs House, and the Newcastle-Upon-Tyne Combined Court Centre. Another important landmark is the Gateshead Millennium Bridge – a pedestrian and cyclist bridge that spans the river to Gateshead on the south bank of the River Tyne. It’s one of the most photographed places in the city. There’s also a little beach type area – sand, deck chairs and buckets – where kids could spend a while playing.
