Stroll along the Tyne and savour the view.

The Quayside has always been at the heart of our city, from its heritage as an important dockside to its modern-day reputation for café and bar culture. There are also some amazing walks taking you on both sides of the Quayside and over many of our iconic river crossings, including the Tyne Bridge and the Swing Bridge. If you’re just after a wander followed by a bite to eat and a pint then the Quayside is where you need to head. With its many bars and cafes with wow-factor waterside views you can sit back and relax and feel like you’re on holiday in your own city. If you are in the mood for an adventure, then how about kayaking or paddle boarding along the River Tyne with CBK Adventure. You’ll be able to experience the Quayside from an entirely different perspective with tours taking between the river’s iconic bridge crossings.

It offers everything from world class theatre, stand-up comedy and live music in its quirky historic spaces made from five Grade II listed buildings joined together to create a unique atmosphere with an intimate feel. Tie in your trip with the Sunday Market which has everything you need whether you're a foodie or fashion conscious, a browser or a buyer.
