The centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne has many fine buildings which have been recognised and protected through the listing process, particularly in the famous Graingertown area. One of these is Newcastle Central Station, a Grade I listed property designed in the 1840s by John Dobson and opened by H.M. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert on 29 August 1850.
