How To Get There By Car & Where To Park


At the end of the A1(M) continue on the A1 and then the A184 towards Newcastle. Continue along this road, bearing left onto the A189. Continue over the River Tyne on the Redheugh Bridge, from which the ground can be clearly seen. Carry on straight up the dual carriageway (St James Boulevard). This leads directly to the Gallowgate end of the ground. As the ground is so central there are a number of pay and display car parks in the vicinity.


An easier way into the City is to stay on the A1 until the exit for Westerhope. Leave the A1 go straight over two roundabouts and then follow the signs for the Royal Victoria Infirmary (Queen Victoria Road) - parking here is in a multi storey and allows a reasonably quick getaway after the game.


By Train


Newcastle Central Railway Station is half a mile from the ground and takes 10-15 minutes to walk.


Come out of the station, across the two zebra crossings and head right onto Grainger Street. Follow this road up to the second set of traffic lights (at Pizza Hut). This will see you at the top of the Bigg Market. You should have met a throng of black and white shirts by now, but failing that, bear left onto Newgate Street and follow the road all the way around to the roundabout with Gallowgate. Following this road all the way round will lead you straight to St James Park.


By Air


Newcastle Airport is located seven miles away from the City Centre. The easiest way to get into Newcastle is to go by Metro. The airport has its own Metro station which is situated next to the passenger terminal. There are frequent departures to the City Centre and the journey time is 23 minutes.

St James Park has it's own Metro Station but it is often overcrowded and you may have to change to get there


Any of the City Centre stations (Haymarket and Monument) are only a 10 minute walk away


Be very careful about parking your car at Metro stations if you do not know the area - many are training grounds for car theives
