  • Grabbed a quick coffee, looks to be a good place but I was only there for a few minutes. Would like to try it again some day I am back in Newcastle.
  • Love the simple art exhibitions they have on. A fantastic, edgy art addition to the city.
  • Was a great experience, staff were friendly and helpful
  • A truly fascinating part of Newcastle's history, the lock up has a number of immaculately kept former prison rooms. The exhibitions held there are also worth going for alone.
  • I never thought there would be such a decent place to explore in a unique town like this one. Only a gold coin donation was appreciated. Got to see a room for the retarded I guess? Go check this place out, I'd recommend this to my friends!
