Our History

Take a stroll through the centuries as you explore The Exchange Hotel. Enjoy displays of antique treasures and touch the original heritage bricks laid down in 1880 by builder and first owner John Williams.

Originally named “The Miners Exchange”, this iconic Newcastle venue has undergone many renovations in the 140 years since its doors first opened, however the history of the venue is still present in every corner.

From the local brass band playing regular gigs in the 1880s to the brand new live music auditorium, The Exchange pays tribute to its long history in every aspect of its offering.
