Quayside Hotels in Newcastle


Quayside Hotels – The Quayside is the area along the banks of the River Tyne, with Newcastle north of the river and Gateshead to the south.  The area was once a busy industrial and commercial dockside serving the city.  In recent years the area has been heavily redeveloped to provide an environment for the modern arts, music and culture.

The Gateshead side of the river is now referred to as the Gateshead Quays and is the site of both the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and The Sage Gateshead performing arts and conference centre.

The iconic Tyne Bridge is known throughout the world, linking Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead.  There are actually ten bridges connecting the two.  The Tyne Bridge, relatively new Millennium footbridge, the Swing Bridge, the High Level Bridge, the Queen Elizabeth Bridge, the King Edward rail bridge, the Redheugh Bridge, Scotswood Bridge, the A1 western bypass, and the Newburn Bridge.

One of the Quayside’s main features is the pedestrian Gateshead Millennium Bridge, opened in 2001, which spans the river between the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Newcastle Law Courts.  The Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge.  The award-winning structure was conceived and designed by architect Wilkinson Eyre and structural engineer Gifford.  It is sometimes referred to as the ‘Blinking Eye Bridge‘ or the ‘Winking Eye Bridge‘ due to its shape and its tilting method.

The Newcastle side also hosted a regular street market, they still have a market there on every Sunday including Easter Sunday, Newcastle Quayside.

There is an excellent bus service to the quayside from central Newcastle called the Quaylink.

Newcastle’s iconic quayside is one of the most popular areas for nights out in Newcastle, with an array of bars, clubs and restaurants to choose from.  Quayside is Newcastle’s premier bar-hopping hotspot.  Every weekend, the evening brings revellers in their droves, all looking to let their hair down in the various bars and clubs. Brewdog serves up craft beer for the discerning pub-goer, Aveika is Quayside’s cocktail capital and Pitcher & Piano is a high-end gastrobar overlooking the Tyne.  After closing hours, head to Riverside Club for beats and treats.
There are some excellent cocktail bars and clubs along the waterfront with Sandhill just by the swing bridge having some of the best in town.  If you head in the opposite direction you will find some relaxed quayside bars such as The Head of Steam Quayside and Pitcher & Piano, with great views of the river and iconic Tyne and Millennium bridges.
