Northumberland Street is a major shopping street in the city of Newcastle upon Tyne, in the North East of England. It is home to a wide range of different retailers, banks and cafes, and in terms of rental per square foot, Northumberland Street is the most expensive location in the UK outside London to own a shop. There are currently over 51 retailers including pubs on Newcastle's Northumberland Street.LocationThe street runs from the Haymarket Interchange Metro station and The Newcastle Civic Centre in the north, towards Pilgrim Street and the Monument Metro station at the south. It encompasses the entrance to the Eldon Square Shopping Centre It also houses the entrance to the Monument Mall Shopping Centre.South of Blackett Street, Northumberland Street ends at the junction with Pilgrim Street which runs to the Tyne Bridge. From the opening of the bridge in 1928 until the opening of the Tyne Tunnel in 1967, Northumberland Street was part of the A1 between London and Edinburgh. It is now pedestrianised.Until 1999, the most northerly section of Northumberland Street from Northumberland Road onwards was still open to traffic and a busy bus route, which led to the shops in this part of the street being much less popular than those farther south. This section is now pedestrianised in keeping with the remainder of the street. However, some electronic maps still show this part as an accessible road.

  • I can honestly say that the customer service is second to none. The only thing that spoiled my visit was that some of the items that I wanted were not available there. Apart from that it felt as if I had died and gone to heaven.
  • Great staff and excellent choice of costumes and magic supplies! Shop must be visited to appreciate.
  • Simple browsing shop all laid out for easy viewing. Helpful staff.
  • We arrived almost at closing time but were well looked after. Unfortunately the costume that was listed on their website as available was not in the shop. But could be ordered in for us.
  • Great staff....very helpful. Lots of costumes and bits to go with em. Can try them on before you buy.
