We are a city centre stadium therefore we always advise supporters to use public transport. Please use the links below to navigate this page.
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.
If you are travelling from the coast/Wallsend (on the yellow line), take the Metro to St. James' Metro station, come out of the station, walk up the steps ahead and you will see the ground. If you are travelling from South Tyneside/Gosforth, get off at Haymarket and follow the directions listed above.
Remember that the Magpie Mover is valid on all buses for three hours before and after the match, enabling you to get to the games for only £10 per season with your season ticket.
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
Lots of major airlines fly into Newcastle Internationl Airport (NCL) which is located seven miles north east from the stadium. Newcastle International is the North-East's largest airport, handling over four million passengers a year. The airport receives flights from over 80 destinations worldwide, which includes a long-haul scheduled service to Dubai from Newcastle.
Travelling from the airport to the stadium is also very easy with local Metro service linking the airport and stadium via one change at Monument Metro station or you can walk the short distance from Monument Metro station. There are also taxi and hotel shuttle services available.
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.
Cycling is a wonderful way to travel cheaply while keeping fit. Did you know that on average, it is possible to cycle around 11 miles per hour on a flat surface? There are a total of 40 bike stands outside St. James' Park.
Cycling maps to show routes to the city centre and St. James' Park are available from Newcastle City Council.
St. James' Park is within easy walking distance of Newcastle Central railway station and also both bus stations. It is located around a five minute walk from the heart of the city centre, and is signposted throughout.
Have you thought about saving a few quid and having a chat about the game... car sharing.
Petrol is an increasingly expensive commodity, and that's not to mention the costs and hassle of parking etc. It's not rocket science that if this is shared between two people, this cost is halved, and you could even take it in turns to drive. There is a full database of those willing to share their journeys on the Altoonative Travel website, and you could soon have someone to talk to about the game en route.
The stadium is located centrally within Newcastle city centre, for visits on a non-match day there are several car parks that are available within a few minutes walk from the stadium. If you do choose to travel by car you can find the stadium by using the below address:
Newcastle United FC
St. James' Park
Newcastle upon Tyne
