Newgate Street Shopping Centre


A few photos taken in Newgate Street Shopping Centre which I remember hearing a while back that it was to be demolished and replaced by a new Swallow Hotel. A quick Google finds this article...


A Multi-Million pound scheme to replace an eyesore shopping centre has been given the green light.

Newgate Street in Newcastle is set for an £100m revamp which will see the 1960s shopping centre demolished and replaced with new shops, offices and three hotels.

A total of 1,200 jobs look set to be created by the scheme, which was given planning permission by city councillors.

Don't hold your breath...

Edit: Demolition has begun 6 years after plans were first revealed.
