This spectacular space was created in 1892-3 as a first-class refreshment room. The walls are clad with full-height glazed earthenware by Burmantofts of Leeds and given a faience clad lantern. Even the columns have this ceramic cladding.

The Centurion Bar on Newcastle Central Station is one of the most spectacular buildings you can visit in the city. It was not built as the busy bar it is today but, rather, was created in 1892-3 by the North Eastern Railway’s architect, William Bell, as the first class refreshment room. The walls were clad with full-height faience (glazed earthenware) by Burmantofts of Leeds and given a faience clad lantern. Even the columns have this ceramic cladding. Quite a place to start your train journey!
