Venue and travel

The venue for this meeting is St. James' Park the home of Newcastle United Football Club. With a city centre location, St. James’ Park is one of the most accessible and well-connected football grounds in the UK. 

The stadium is located close to the junction of Gallowgate, St. James’ Boulevard and Barrack Road, just a ten-minute walk from Newcastle Central Station and around five minutes from Monument Metro Station and the city’s major bus stations. Simply follow the pedestrian signs located throughout the city centre. Plus the North East is a busy hub for NHS hospitals and schools of anaesthesia.

By road 

The stadium is located close to the junction of Gallowgate, St. James’ Boulevard and Barrack Road. There are no unreserved public car parks at St. James’ Park. Instead, we strongly recommend using public transport to reach the stadium.

By rail

Situated on the East Coast Mainline, Newcastle Central Station is a principle stop for services between London and Edinburgh/Glasgow. In addition to regional services, it also offers direct cross-country routes to and from Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool Birmingham and Bristol. 

The station is a ten-minute walk from St. James’ Park, walk west along Neville Street (A186) and turn right onto St. James’ Boulevard. The stadium is located at the top of the road and will become visible as you reach the junction with Bath Lane/Wellington Street.

By air

Newcastle International Airport is situated just 5 miles away from the city centre, the perfect touch down for tourists who travel to the city. 

Newcastle upon Tyne is served by the Tyne & Wear Metro system; a light rail network with frequent services between Newcastle Airport, Newcastle city centre, the coast, and major transport interchanges and destinations south to Wearside.

We recommend St. James’ Metro station for local coastal destinations, while Monument station – a five-minute walk away – is served by both yellow and green line routes towards Newcastle International Airport, South Shields and the coast.
