Central Exchange Buildings



The Central Exchange is a triangular building, designed by John Wardle and George Walker and built by Richard Grainger as part of the redevelopment of Newcastle city centre. The building was completed c1838 initially intended to be a corn exchange, but soon became a subscription news room (see picture of the news room c1860). In 1870 the Institution for Promoting the Fine Arts converted the news room into an art gallery, concert hall and theatre. The interior of the building was badly damaged by fires in 1867 and 1901. Much of the interior was replaced by the Central Arcade which opened in 1906.
