The Swirl Pavillion is situated on the Newcastle side of the Quayside.

Both a sculpture and a building, the Swirle Pavillion appears to be a folly for the Quayside. It has the names of various towns carved around the inner rim taken by the artist from a faded sign at Plummer Chare and were the destinations for a local shipping company. The pavilion takes its name from a hidden stream, which flows into the Tyne at this point.
