  • Lovely place if you are interested in contemporary artists and you want to do some research. The gift shop has adorable items you can buy but can be quite pricey. Overall the staff are also lovely and the interactive play area is a wonderful place to take children (or teenagers like our squad.)
  • Superb gallery, one of the very best in Britain. All the staff are friendly and good at their jobs. Has a brilliant shop. The ground floor cafe has excellent food and service.
  • Great place to take the kids while the playground exhibition is on. There are several floors of exhibitions, a rooftop restaurant and a ground floor cafe and souvenir shop. Free entry however there are plenty of donation boxes all around the centre. On the fourth floor there is a viewing terrace with amazing views of the Tyne in all its glory.
  • Great free gallery showcasing local artists, always something new and interesting when I return to Newcastle. The view from the top is excellent too
  • Free entry and full of artsy exhibits, (Even in the srairwell!). Has a nice view of Newcastle from their glass elevator too. However many exhibits are only around temporarily and take a while to be set up, so your best checking ahead of time as to what is actually open.
