Beautiful pleasant walk

If you're in Newcastle it's worth a walk by the river. There were lots of restaurants and cafes, you can sit by the river if you want and just enjoy the view.

Gettting to the Quayside is easy . From the Central Train Station turn right and walk down the road when you see the Newcastle Keep (looks like the remains of a castle) cross over the road then down the stairs then walk down the bank and you are there.(if you can't manage stairs when you cross the road go left...

Regenerated over recent years, it is now a pleasant walk along the quayside. Plenty of cafes on hand to keep everyone fed and watered. The views of the bridges of Newcastle make for stunning photography.

We stayed in the Premier Inn with a view of the river, bridges etc. Rain of shine, it's got so much to see, from the bridges, buildings and occasional boats. We were privileged to see the nesting Kittiewakes. The city is within a short walking distance.

The Quayside is by far one of the most iconic places to visit in England. Steeped in history, you have everything you would need & on a nice day there's so much to do. You have the iconic views, the Baltic arts centre, the Sage, more restraints, pubs, bars & hotels than you can count. Betty surtees house, the castle... More

We enjoyed walking from Ousburne back to Newcastle via the Quayside walkway, but it was extremely windy on the day we walked. Made for some excellent picture-taking opportunities due to the bridges, buildings, sculptures.

Approached from the ancient narrow cobbled streets of Newcastle the Quayside is a fine place to walk. There are some very good Restaurants and Spectacular views of iconic bridges and historic buildings. Across the river from the Baltic Art Centre and the Sage Concert and Entertainment Venue. Street entertainment adds to the atmosphere.
