Maybe not as widely recognised as some
of the other areas in the town, the Central Station has some really smart pubs
that are well worth visiting. As you step out of the Central Railway Station
there are numerous pubs to choose from to quench your thirst.
One notable pub worth mentioning is the "Bridge Hotel" which is directly
opposite the castle. It has a small
terraced area outside which affords spectacular views of the Tyne bridges and
Across the road from the station
you can find the historic "Union Rooms" which was taken over by J D Wetherspoons
and converted into one of the biggest bars in town.
Another popular bar is Centurion which is located in the old first
class waiting room in the Central Station and has some fine original features.
The area stretches from the Centre for Life at
one end to the 'new' Castle Keep (built in 1080) which gave Newcastle its name
at the other.
Only a few minutes walk from the station you will also find the Metro Radio Arena
which attracts all the big names from the music world.
All in all there is something in this area to suit all tastes.
