  • An excellent monument to an unsung hero of Democracy in the UK and to the world famous type of tea too! Sadly the number of opportunities to climb the spiral staircase inside right up to the top are few and far between as this is done by volunteers only. It's worth checking out online as to when the next time to go up is as the view from up there is remarkable!
  • A lively scenic monument right in the centre of Newcastle. A great meeting place.
  • Central point to so many interesting places... the introvert in me loathes the rowdy disorderliness that is Grey's monument
  • 'Grey' sums this place up perfectly. Bland and boring.
  • Amazing place for fun day out or shopping with great access to buses or metro.
