The Quayside is an area along the banks of the River
Tyne in Newcastle (the north bank) and Gateshead
(south bank).  The area was once an industrial area
and busy commercial dockside.  In recent years as
the docks became run-down, the area has been heavily
redeveloped to provide a modern environment for the
arts, music and culture, as well as new housing
developments.  The Gateshead side of the river is
designated as Gateshead Quays.  It is the site of the
Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and The Sage
Gateshead performing arts and conference centre.
