  • Nice enough, but not much more than an interesting sight to see. Once you've seen it, spent a few minutes taking a picture or something there's not much more to it.
  • Easy to spot landmark and a popular meeting point. People tend to meet around the steps of the monument since it's a central location in town. There are often protesters, petition gatherers, street performers, speakers, etc around the monument so it can be a bit crowded. There are lots of shops, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants nearby, as well as Monument Metro station. The main bus station isn't far away either.
  • I love monument, one of the busiest area of the Newcastle city. And love the markets
  • Often entertainment in one form or another (busker, music band, big screen movies), also used by preachers and protesters as a sounding board. Great meeting point.
  • It's about as big as you can get and if you can find a day when it's open it's got the best views in the whole of the city
