4 reviews of Grey Street

Built during the industrial revolution

Grey Street is in the Grainger neighborhood, which is the "new" neighborhood as it built during the industrial revolution. It is also an entry point for Monument Metro Station. Grainger reformed the neighborhood making it cleaner. The street leading out from Grey's Monument (which is a column) goes down to Gateshead. John Dobson and Richard Grainger (the 1830s city architect) built Grey Street. Leaving the column you first come to the Theatre Royal, then posh pubs and cafes - it is a lively area and close to all the stores. The street is mostly famous for its elegant architecture and its seamless integration between buildings and monuments - it was voted the most beautiful street in the UK in a competition organized by the BBC.
