Newcastle’s Northumberland Street is the city centre’s busiest, most exciting street in the whole of Newcastle. There are plenty of shops on either side of the street. There are buskers to listen to, the noise of all the chatting is exciting! I love Northumberland Street,...More

Really good atmosphere in Hadrian's Tipi and around Hadrian's Christmas markets area. Super cosy fire pits. Very good music and plenty staff so bar service was tiptop. All ages welcome. Fun Snow globe too.

Northumberland Street is Newcastle's main shopping street! Every single high street chain is here, either directly on it or in the Intu Eldon Square shopping centre (or both). Obviously during the day, and especially if it's the weekend, it will be super extra busy!!!

Spent the morning here with my young daughter. We had a good time browsing the shops and soaking in the atmosphere. Plenty of street performers to be found. We had a sit in the good weather and enjoyed the shows.
