The Central Arcade is a Grade II listed Edwardian shopping arcade built in 1906 located in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is an elegant place with its glass barrel-vaulted roof and stunning tile work.

It is located in a triangular building, originally called the Central Exchange, which was designed by Oswald and Son and built by Richard Grainger in 1836–38. Initially a commercial center, then a subscription newsroom where people went to read the newspapers, and later an art gallery.
