Well ingrained in Newcastle’s history and heritage, the Grainger Market is actually a Grade I Listed Market, which retains much of the stunning light and airy architecture that was designed by John Dobson. Constructed as part of the cities redevelopment by architect Richard Grainger in the 1830s, Grainger Market first opened in 1835 and is one of the few market halls in the UK that remain in use for its original purpose. Known for its unique hidden treasures, Grainger Market is also home to ‘Marks and Spencer Original Penny Bazaar’, the world's smallest Marks and Spencer store, and Nan Bei, one of the best Chinese dumpling stalls you'll find up North!
