A very nice area of the city and a really nice market with great architecture as well as a good variety of stalls. Little Italy is an excellent cafe in the market.

Fabulous part of Newcastle. Beautiful buildings, stone facades, classic designs. A walk up Grey Street from the quayside, through Central arcade and on to Grainger street today in glorious summer sun.

Wow! What a great place to get a massive slice of authentic pizza pizza for £2.00. If your hungry but not wanting a large meal its a great. Whilst your eating your pizza you can soak up the market vibes and it's splendid historic surroundings.
