Newcastle Central station is served by trains from across the North-East and beyond, with frequent services both before and after the game to get you here easily.
Newcastle Central station is located around 15 minute walk from St. James’ Park, and is well signposted. Cross the road from the station, and walk up Pink Lane, passing the Forth Hotel. Turn right onto Clayton Street, then left onto Westgate Street. Outside Tilleys Bar, bear right onto Bath Lane, passing Fujiyama Restaurant. After 200 metres, turn right and then left onto Gallowgate, and the ground will be obvious from here.
Alternatively, take the Metro from Central Station to Haymarket. Cross the road, and turn left. At Mordon Street (next to the Goose), turn right and then left, walking around the back of Eldon Gardens. The ground is at the end of this road (Strawberry Place), just beyond the Strawberry Pub
Two park and ride schemes are currently in operation: from Newcastle Great Park (just to the west of the A1) and also the ‘Soccerbus’ that operates from Metro Centre. With tickets on sale on the buses for £2 return (free with a Magpie Mover), this offers a great way to avoid the hassle of finding (and paying for) a parking spot in the city centre.
No need to book, just turn up on the day – both park and rides are operational from around 3 hours before the game and 3 hours afterwards to make your journey as flexible as possible.
Newcastle has two major bus stations, Haymarket (for services from Northumberland and the North) and Eldon Square (services from County Durham and the south). These are located adjacent to each other on Percy Street, next to Haymarket Metro station. From both bus stations, cross over to the far side of the road, then walk up the passageway next to the Goose public house, and turn left.
The Stagecoach buses which operate within Newcastle and Gateshead city boundaries do not stop at either of the bus stations, but stop in the centre of town, from where the ground is signposted and easily walkable.
What’s more, if you are travelling within Tyne and Wear, travel is £10 for a whole season with a Magpie Mover. Even without this, you’ll find a range of bus tickets available to meet your needs from each of the bus operators.
