Quayside secondary NewcastleGateshead Quayside

The Quayside is a must-visit place for anyone visiting NewcastleGateshead.

Flanking both sides of the River Tyne, Quayside is a fantastic place for scenic strolls and bike rides, a spot of sightseeing or a meal at one of the top restaurants on NewcastleGateshead Quayside. As night time approaches, choose from vibrant Quayside bars where you can sip cocktails and admire great views.

In the past, the Quayside played a central part of Newcastle's industrial history and heritage, serving as a commercial dockside. Coal was also ferried down to the Quayside via the Victoria Tunnels, which are now a popular tourist attraction, while factories such as the Baltic Flour Mill and Hoults Yard pottery, which have both since been transformed, flourished nearby at Gateshead Quays and Ouseburn. After much of the industry moved on, the area underwent a huge regeneration in the early 2000s, and has since become a hub of arts and culture for the North East, as well as a home to many of the region's best bars and pubs.
