A really great part of town to walk around, with its interesting selection of listed buildings. Plenty of places to stop for a snack or a coffee in the heart of Newcastle.

There is no entrance fee for the Grainger Market. It's still a bustling retail market with a wide variety of goods on offer. Just browse, look around at the architecture and, who knows, perhaps make a purchase or two... More
