If you're staying in Newcastle and love art, this is THE place to go!!! It's completely free to enter, and it has a very good collection of modern and contemporary art!! Some exhibits are particularly catchy! Furthermore, it offers stunning views of the Quayside and Newcastle city centre.

Were walking along quayside and spotted this lovely old mill now art gallery on the other side of the millennium bridge. We were told the bridge was going to open shorty so we crossed and entered the gallery then went straight up to the viewing gallery. It was nice see this lovely bridge swing.

The gallery is another thing though. It’s a huge building but not full off very much. This isn’t a criticism just an observation. It describes itself as minimalist and certainly achieves that.

The Serena Korda was not my thing but was well presented.

The film playing on floor 3 was disturbing. The violin playing the model building support wires was really creepy and the surrounding multi coloured lit corridors felt like I was in a realife Zelda dungeon. I told my wife to watch out for monsters on the ceiling and she proper freaked out. It was actually the best bit. Liked the infinity staircase as well.

Before long we had spent over an hour in there. I’ve given it 5 stars because it’s exactly what it says it is. Not everyone’s sort of thing but it gets people talking even if it’s in a negative way at least it creates a reaction, which is what art is all about.

A real Newcastle destination in its own right but when combined with the Sage and the various offerings comprising the Quayside in general, the combination makes this area the real centrepiece of the Toon.

The Baltic is a fantastic space and there are always various different exhibitions and events on each floor, plus an excellent shop on the ground floor.

Entry is free although it's rightly suggested you make some form of monetary donation, using the various collection receptacles dotted about.

Even if you're not too bothered about seeing what's inside, it's worth the climb to the outside viewing gallery which affords magnificent views of the city.

Very helpful and friendly staff who work there and overall, it's a real positive and excellent part of Newcastle's cultural landscape.

The customer service was excellent but the food was average and far to exspensive for what it was. For the 2 of us ..2 courses and a couple of drinks over £100. Great view of the great city of Newcastle.

Always worth stopping at when walking in the quayside. Lovely children’s area on level 2. My 3 year old always enjoys it.
