If you have a birthday present to buy then rather than going into the City Centre head here as you will be amazed at what is on offer, great jewellery at great prices and unique rather than mass produced.

We come here regularly for our lunches and the pricing of the food is very good for the quality of food you get. The servers are always very friendly too. The salads and cake are excellent and we highly recommend a visit!

Much better than the Baltic! All art work of modern paintings and sculptures and all for sale. Very enjoyable. Some fabulous pieces. Super cafe too with roof terrace, beautifully designed and fitted out. The best place we visited in Newcastle/Gateshead
