"Quayside Public Art - Swirle Pavillion" Quayside Tip by clairegeordio

Quayside, Newcastle upon Tyne: 21 reviews and 43 photos

  Swirle pavillion, Newcastle quayside
by clairegeordio

The provision of public art along the quayside in Newcastle was one of the largest programmes of public art in the UK and was financed by a £3.5m National Lottery grant and money from the public and private sectors. While walking along the quayside to the right of the Millenium bridge on the Newcastle side, I saw a couple of pieces of public art that caught my interest, the first being the Swirle Pavillion, created in 1998. It has the names of several European ports on the inside that were regularly visited by shipping coming from the Tyne.

Address: Quayside, Newcastle side
