The coolest of designer names also feature with Eldon Square,  including Apple, Guess and Holliste.

The main shopping street is Northumberland Street, which affords access to the iconic Fenwick's store and features antique gems like Time Antiques, brimming with Art Deco, Art Nouveau and decorative arts and antiques.  Beyond Northumberland Street discover the wealth of individual and unique retailers in Newcastle, with fashions for all tastes and a great selection of music and entertainment shops.
