Newcastle United away day guide
Getting to St. James’ Park
At the end of the A1(M) continue on the A1 and follow the A184 towards Newcastle. Continue along the A184, veering left onto the A189. Head over the River Tyne on the Redheugh Bridge, from where you will have a good sighting of the ground. Carry on straight up the dual carriageway (St James Boulevard), which will lead you to the Gallowgate end of the ground. There are a number of car parks in the vicinity and there are around 400 spaces at the Newcastle College Car Park, which is between 15 and 20 minutes away.
Newcastle Central Rail Station is about half a mile from St. James’ Park and a walk takes approximately 15-20 minutes. Those wishing to walk should head out of the station, across the two zebra crossings and along Pink Lane, crossing Westgate Road at the top. Walk up Bath Lane and turn right on to Stowell Street (Chinatown). At the end of Stowell Street bear left up St Andrews Street by Rosie’s Bar, under the Chinese arch. Take a left onto Gallowgate and St. James’ Park is on your right.
Supporters can also take bus numbers 36, 36B, 71, 87 or 88 to the ground from Berwick Street, which is directly across the road from Newcastle Central Rail Station.
Newcastle Airport is about seven miles away from the City Centre. The airport has its own Metro station next to the passenger terminal and it takes 23 minutes to get to the City Centre (£2 single, £3 return – £3.80 during peak time or £3.50 for a ‘day saver;). Supporters should change at Monument Metro Station for a metro to St James Park Station.
Fulham fans wishing to travel to St. James’ Park need to contact Fulham’s ticket office this afternoon – there are no on-the-day away ticket sales at St. James’ Park for this fixture.
As St. James’ Park is in the city centre, there are a number of local pubs, bars and clubs to choose from. The pubs closest to the Newcastle Central Railway Station, such as ‘A Head Of Steam’ ‘The Lounge’ and ‘O’Neills,’ usually only admit fans if away colours are covered up and many have refused to allow children inside. The nearest Wetherspoons is called the Union Rooms on Westgate Road.
