Grainger Market Coaster

Grainger Market Coaster

Grainger Market, Newcastle upon Tyne


Newcastle's famous historic indoor market was opened to the public on 24th October 1835, following a grand celebratory opening banquet on 22nd October held in the market itself where 2,000 men sat down to dine and raise a toast to the developers, builders, and architects. Around 400 ladies were "allowed" to observe the dinner, confined to a specially built temporary gallery.

Newcastle's Evening Chronicle reported that a gun was fired from Newcastle's Castle Keep to mark the occasion, but not much else was reported from that evening because rumour has it the reporter they sent to the banquet got too mortal to remember any details!


It's safe to say that the market is a major player in the city's history, heritage and culture. Still contributing to the city's lively atmosphere and charm today, it is home to hundreds of local traders and independent businesses as it is one of the few market halls in the UK that remains in use for its original purpose. Grainger Market is also home to Marks and Spencer Original Penny Bazaar, the world's smallest Marks and Spencer store.

Grainger Market covers a whopping 7,000 square metres which is why we chose to draw just one of the fourteen distinguishable entrances to represent the magnificent Grainger Market in its entirety.
