A cobbled hideaway off the Georgian grandeur of Grey Street, High Bridge is a must visit to uncover independent shopping and the city’s oldest pub!
High Bridge Quarter is a secret known only by the street smart shopper in search of a unique experience.
Lining the cobbles, visitors are tempted not just by vintage shopping and quirky gift shops, but are welcomed by ‘Pleased to Meet You’ a gin house and cocktail bar, BALTIC 39 (BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art’s younger sibling), and a Stand Comedy Club. But the best kept secret of all is situated behind the cobbles, up a few stairs, into Old George Yard.
Here music aficionados trawl through piles of vinyl in RPM and vintage fans delve into a Narnia of historic fashion and memorabilia at Attica; 30 years in the making it sells everything from 1920’s cocktail dresses to retro glass wear.
Finally enjoy a pint in Newcastle’s oldest pub, The Old George. Dating back to the 16th Century, it’s believed King Charles I was a regular.
