Shakespeare Street


A street in Newcastle city centre connecting Grey Street and Pilgrim Street; NE1 6AQ. The side of the Theatre Royal is off this street. The street was built as part of the 19th Century redevelopment of the city centre by Richard Grainger. Both sides of the street originally consisted of houses above shops. However after a major fire at the theatre on 24th of November 1899, most of the north side was incorporated into the theatre when it was refurbished.
