If you're after games I can recommend Travelling Man and to a lesser degree Forbidden Planet, both on Grainger Street (near the station).

Cheers,

Jack

I actually lived in Newcastle upon Tyne 2 years ago, lovely city.

Both Travelling Man and Forbidden Planet are on the same street, just meters away from each other.

Travelling Man, has the back of their shop dedicated to games, mostly miniature games. However, Forbidden Planet has a basement which is dedicated solely to games which gives you a broader variety of games than Travelling Man.

Around the same block you can find a GW shop as well.

My suggestion is you first hit Forbidden Planet, have fun and enjoy your time there.

I was born in Newcastle (Gateshead). Sorry, I can't recommend any shops because it has been too long - I don't even sound English never mind Geordie anymore.
Give Newcastle a kiss for me.

Forbidden Planet's selection seems to have gone downhill recently. Travelling Man seem to be a lot better at the minute.
