Unusually we came to the Quayside from the west by walking down the flights of hundreds of stone stairs that are accessible from behind the Central Station. As you reach the quay you are "knocked out" by the stunning view of so many beautiful and amazing bridges. Especially dramatic is the New Tyne Brdige, towering over the scene but look carfull at that lovely little "Swing" Bridge, almost at water level, which used to open to order as large ships came up or down stream. A man was line fishing for what he called "flatties" or maybe a little codling or ( rarely he said ) a small sea trout and he agreed it was wonderful that the River Tyne ( England's fastest-flowing major river ) was again a salmon river. The superb High Level Bridge is still taking all three - pedestrians , railway trains and vehicular traffic after nearly 150 years of service and there finally the wonderful new pedestrian walkway opened to celebrate the turn of the century.. There are countless good bars, restaurants and cafés along the main half-mile section on the Newcastle side and across the water are the renowned Baltic arts and crafts gallery and the superb Sage multi purpose arts centre. Older folk will be glad to know that there are excellent bus services connecting to the city centre.

I did visit the area one Saturday evening, probably not the best time, and on my own. Area was full of hen and stag parties which were raucous. Might be better later into Summer and mid week.

Used to live in Newcastle and I'd go out of my way to head 'down the Quayside' every now and again. You can walk along the river, visit the Millennium bridge or grab a quiet pint in one of the pubs. Great place to take somebody special or just lounge around with friends (not that they're not special).

Amazed at how well the Quayside has been revamped...lived here in the 80s and first time back. Beautiful bridges, tastefully restored building's, nice bars and restaurants and even a "beach" for the children. Well done Newcastle!

Called in this pub/restaurant for a drink and a chat with colleagues, following a day’s work in the area. The facilities were nice and clean, and the atmosphere was friendly and inviting. It is definitely a place to have a pleasant night out without being overly priced.
