Grainger Town is one of the dazzling jewels in our crown, with classical architecture designed in the 1830s by the internationally renowned Richard Grainger. Grainger Town is the historic heart of Newcastle upon Tyne and includes Grainger Market, Theatre Royal, Grey Street, Grainger Street and Clayton Street.

40% of buildings in the area are listed as being of historical and architectural importance. The focal point of Grainger Town is Grey's Monument, erected in 1838 to commemorate the Reform Act of 1832, drafted during Earl Grey's time as Prime Minister.

Head south down Grey Street, Academy of Urbanism’s 2010 Great Street Award winner. Home to Theatre Royal and a range of restaurants, bars and cafes, galleries and independent shops. Take time to explore Grainger Market, home to the original Marks and Spencer's Penny Bazaar and Central Arcade.
