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 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.

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