Event description

Description

The Grainger Market, a Grade I listed building, is a permanent covered market and has been at the heart of Newcastle life since 1835. It was part of the redevelopment of Newcastle by Richard Grainger and his architect John Dobson. At the time it sold mainly meat and vegetables. The market still retains its traditional feel and houses a number of unique features including a fish market, the world's smallest and oldest branch of Marks and Spencer which has traded since 1895 and the unique weigh-house. Special tours on each of the four sundays before Christmas will take place in the market.

Tour 1 - 12 noon to 1pm

Tour 2 - 1.30pm to 2.30pm

Please meet at the Grainger Market Inspectors Office (Alley 2 next to the weighhouse) 5 minutes before the tour begins.
