The quayside is a fantastic location for a walk with great views of the many bridges which cross the river and the building either side. There are a number of ideal watering holes to stop along route and enjoy the view. There is also a great number floor plaques of famous people from Newcastle to spot along route.

It is a lovely walk along the Quayside, looking at Newcastle's famous bridges. The day we went there was a Christmas Market along the Quayside which was lovely.

Just a simply beautiful place to walk down, particularly at night with the Millennium Bridge illuminated! Some absolutely beautiful, amazing, fine dining restaurants to be found, a café where you can go and play with cats, and the Great British Cupcakery where you can find the best milkshakes in the world! Check them out on instagram!

Cracking bars and restaurants around this area of Newcastle. A more chilled vibe than the Bigg Market and possibly a slightly older crowd which, for me at least, is a big thumbs up!
