“Waste of money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2012

I just didn't like it. I couldn't see the point of the money spent on it. I'm sure the money could have been better spend on something else.

“Blue Carpet”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

This is somewhere I walk across regularly and never fail to wonder why Newcastle Council thought it a good idea to waste so much money on something which looks absolutely nothing. Can't imagine anyone actually going to see this.

“Waste of Time don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2012

Everytime I walk across this I get angry thinking that of my council tax went to pay for this extremly expenssive rubbish. The Laing Gallery is really worth a visit, just don't look down at the "carpet" as you walk towrds the gallery

“Was good when it was first put down, but not now.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

It looked good and a bit quirky when it was first put down, but now it's barely noticeable. Not worth investing any time or effort to go out of your way to see, or spend much time looking at, but it's interesting to note that it's there if you're on your way to see the Laing Art Gallery (which is right beside it).
