Travelling to St. James' Park

Cycling, Bus, Metro, Train, Park & Ride, Coach and Taxi details

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.

There are no unreserved public car parks on event days at St. James' Park and traffic restrictions may be in place.

Instead, we strongly recommend using public transport to reach the stadium, or if you're feeling fit then cycling is one of the healthiest ways of getting to the match. There are 35 'Sheffield stands' located around the stadium for you to lock your bicycle at. To plan your route, visit www.gosmarter.co.uk/journeyplanner.



Metro Services

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

We recommend St. James' Metro station for local 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.

For more information, visit www.nexus.org.uk/metro.



Train Services

Situated on the East Coast Mainline, Newcastle Central Station is a principle stop for services between London and Edinburgh/ Glasgow. 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 will become visible as you reach the junction of Bath Lane/ Wellington Street.

Park And Ride

We operate a park and ride system from two sites close to the A1 motorway– from Newcastle Great Park (close to the Newcastle Racecourse) and the MetroCentre; one of Europe's biggest shopping centres.

Public Buses

We have two major bus stations for local and regional services: Haymarket, for services to and from Northumberland and the North, and Eldon Square, for services to and from County Durham and the South.

Both are located on Percy Street, a five-minute walk from St. James' Park.

To reach the stadium, walk south west on Percy Street and turn right onto Gallowgate. For more information on local bus services, please visit www.nexus.org.uk/bus.





Newcastle Coach Station is on St. James’ Boulevard and receives National Express coach services, while Megabus operates services from outside Newcastle Central Station.

Both offer frequent services from across the UK with links to Europe.

If you plan to travel via a private fan coach, please contact the club's safety and security office on 0191 201 8698.

We will be happy to advise you on suitable drop-off points.
