Seaside by the Quayside
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside – oh I do like to be beside… Newcastle Quayside Seaside! Get ready to feel the sand between your toes with the NE1 Newcastle Quayside Seaside returns this May 2019 until October 2019.
One of Newcastle and Gateshead’s most iconic spaces (the Quayside) is transformed every year into a seaside paradise complete with deckchairs, palm trees, candy-striped beach huts and golden sand!
Soak up the sun with a stunning view or enjoy building a sandcastle in the city centre! Recline in the sunshine on a brand new astro-turf area equipped with additional seating, giant outdoor games and an area designed to welcome a roster of street food vendors. Kick back, relax and while away a summer’s day in this city centre oasis.
As part of its support, Northumbrian Water is planning a range of fun and interactive activities on the Quayside Seaside to keep beachgoers hydrated and entertained including yoga and pilates. The Northumbrian Water team will work with local businesses to offer free water re-filling stations in the surrounding area.
