Plans have been approved to convert a disused fire station in the centre of Newcastle-on-Tyne into a luxury hotel.

The Grade II-listed fire station in Pilgrim Street will include 60 bedrooms and nearly 4,000 sq ft of restaurant and bar space.

The fire station opened in 1933 and was the main fire station for Newcastle until its closure in 2005.

Features of the fire station will be maintained and enhanced in the new hotel. The former fire engine bays will be used to create pavement café areas. An internal courtyard space will be landscaped and will be open to the public. The old hose tower will act as an arrival point for hotel guests.

The conversion of the fire station into a hotel is expected to take around eighteen months.
