Newcastle Quayside : Information + Photos
Tyneside buildings by the River Tyne – New + Old Architecture, north East England
5 Dec 2013
The Quayside in Newcastle was flooded on the afternoon of 5 December 2013 after a tidal surge saw the River Tyne reach its highest level for 30 years. The Quayside in Newcastle closed from the Law Courts. Pubs and businesses were flooded as the waters of the Tyne rose and inches-deep water poured over the roads and pavements. A 400-m stretch between the Tyne Bridge and the Millennium Bridge was flooded almost instantly, and traffic came to a standstill.

The Quayside includes the following restaurants and bars: the sophisticated Terry Laybourne’s Cafe 21 ; Sabatini’s serves authentic Italian dishes ; rooftop restaurant SIX at BALTIC which creates modern British cuisine with a twist ; The Sage Gateshead Brasserie serving locally-produced food and a fine selection of wine ; O de V, a new restaurant on Gateshead Quayside with the finest steaks.
