City Road


City Road is a major road in Newcastle, which forms part of the A186 route, heading east out of the city centre. It starts a short distance from the Swan House roundabout branching off Pilgrim Street/Melbourne Street, running roughly eastwards for 1km on to Walker Road, which continues the A186 route. The remains of Corner Tower from the old Town Walls are located at the western end of City Road. The road here also runs close to the Keelmen's Hospital (almshouse) of 1701. St Anne's Church of 1768 is located by City Road as the road enters Byker. There are also many modern buildings along the road.
