"Grey's Monument" Earl Grey's Monument Tip by steventilly
Earl Grey's Monument, Newcastle upon Tyne: 5 reviews and 5 photos
Favorite thing: Climbing back up into the city centre from under the Tyne Bridge, up Dean Street you eventually enter Grey Street. This is one of Newcastle's nicest streets (and voted one of the finest in the country), built of stone block in a typical regency style. It was designed by John Dobson and Richard Grainger in 1830 (those two both have streets in newcastle named after them).
At the top of Grey Street is The Theatre Royal and a monument to the man who gives the street its name - Earl Grey. You can climb to the top of this tower on certain days in the year, though most often it's closed.
Behind the monument you can see a domed roof - this is Monument Mall, mentioned elsewhere.
Directions: At the top of Grey Street next to Monument Metro station
