The people of Newcastle are so lucky to have such superb architecture on tap. This superb street, and the rest of 'Grainger Town' are superb. Just being able to wander from Greys Monument, the Theatre Royal, and down the street is just fantastic. Eat your heart out Bath.

Anyone visiting Newcastle should make sure they take a walk down Grey Street to appreciate the amazing array of old buildings. Luckily for us these buildings have been well maintained and give the onlooker the opportunity to enjoy the architecture of a previous age.

Lovely little area of Newcastle. Beautiful buildings, some very nice shops, bars and restaurants to visit too. Slightly more expensive than the rest of Newcastle, but worth it.

A wonderful part of Newcastle showing the might and glory of the British Empire reflected in the magnificent architecture. Now full of great shops and eateries. A great walk down here to the quays from the heart of Newcastle.

And it has been for hundreds of years. It looks fabulous and is now full of restaurants and , towards the bottom end, bars. It's worth walking along just to see the beautiful, harmonious buildings. It's one if the most beautiful streets in England.
