a unique capsule of market life. There are a great variety of goods on offer but I would have liked to see more food, vegetables and delli items. I loved the weigh house.

An architectural treat. A great area to stroll around and admire some of the best townscape of any British City. The Grainger Market, with its original Marks and Spencer Penny Bazaar is well worth a visit.

Much of Newcastle City Centre is made up by Grainger Town. It has some very beautiful Georgian buildings and boosts loads of businesses and restaurants, from well-known chains to small, little independents. 2 Cinemas are also located in Grainger Town: Cineworld (ex- Empire) at The...More

This mall offers you some of the finest shops and cafés but still has that Victorian feel. Just have stop for a moment and look different to all of the features of this mall.
