Grainger Town, Newcastle upon Tyne

Stroll the streets of Grainger Town, the historical heart of the city, to see classical Newcastle architecture at its best. Richard Grainger designed and built the buildings here between 1824 and 1841. Now designated a conservation area, it contains over 200 listed buildings. Check out Grey Street, Grainger Street, and Clayton Street, as well as the iconic Theatre Royal. Stop by the covered Grainger Market for a bite to eat or to buy some local produce, meats, and other goods. Be sure to look up while walking to notice the unique features atop the buildings, such as domes, turrets, and spikes.
