Quayside is an area along the banks of the River Tyne, in Newcastle upon Tyne (the north bank), often abbreviated to simply Newcastle, and Gateshead (south bank), in the North East of England, one of the nine official regions of England, UK. Its history starts with the need for water, the fight for land, the wealth of coal and resilience of spirit which have shaped it and made it what it is today.
The Gateshead side of the river is designated and sign-posted as Gateshead Quays, and it is the site of the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and The Sage Gateshead performing arts and conference centre, while the Newcastle side is an area that houses restaurants, night clubs and bars, as well as housing and the Newcastle Law Courts. One of the Quayside's main features is the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, which spans the river between the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Newcastle Law Courts.
Quayside is surrounded by seven beautiful bridges, which include Swing Bridge, completed in 1876 and King Edward VII, started in 1906, and opened by King Edward VII, the last one constructed being Gateshead Millennium Bridge, which was opened to the public, in September, 2001.
Besides the amazing views, Quayside's area also offers dozens of interesting places for people to visit, among the most popular ones also being the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, known as the biggest gallery of its kind in the world, featuring a dynamic, diverse and international programme of contemporary visual art, housed in a landmark industrial building, on the south bank of the River Tyne, in Gateshead.
The Biscuit Factory, Britain's biggest commercial gallery, comprising 35,000 square feet with two floors of exhibition spaces and two floors of artists' studios, situated right in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, is also worth seeing when visiting Quayside. Here, art-passionate can purchase or just admire paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewellery and glass by artists from all over the world. The entrance is free and there is also a cafe and restaurant on-site.
Another "must see" in the area of Quayside is considered to be The Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas, the Mother Church of the Diocese of Newcastle, which stretches from the Tyne to the Tweed, one of England's smaller cathedrals. Monuments and little known treasures can be found within the building, its rich heritage reflecting that of Newcastle, the Cathedral revealing the story of the City and the Diocese, and of its development.
