Gateshead secondary By the River Brew Co., Gateshead Quayside

Discover Gateshead! 

On the south bank of the River Tyne sits Gateshead – a town with a trendy, artisan edge as well as an expansive and beautiful countryside ready for you to explore.

The famous Quayside is where visitors find By The River Brew Co – a popular microbrewery and award-winning restaurant, street food market and all round hipster’s paradise. Explore further along Gateshead Quayside and find art and culture in the form of BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Sage Gateshead – the impressive, curved-roof music venue which can be seen from the Tyne Bridge. Wander still further along the river towards the historic Dunstan Staiths structure to enjoy a bite to eat at the independent Staiths Café.

Bridges Quarter is hidden on the south bank of the River Tyne at the Gateshead entrance to the High Level Bridge. The area is host to a plethora of independent shops and businesses nestled in and around the railway arches. Head to Central Bar  for live music and great company or pop into Block and Bottle – an independent, dedicated free-range butcher and craft beer bottle shop.
