For anyone wanting a quieter pub crawl in Newcastle the Haymarket is the place to go. Age group is between 40 and death and guaranteed to see very little young fanny, so if your awld or a ‘rear-gunner’ thats the place to go

Area contains a bus station and a Metro Rail station. It also contains a selection of beggars and down and outs and could be intimidating to some. Not for the faint hearted

This a great place for getting to other places, as it's close to the metro and a bus station. It's also a short walk on to the main shopping street and shopping centre as well pubs, restaurants and the cinema.
