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.

 

HOW TO GET HERE BY METRO

 

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.

Lots of major airlines fly into Newcastle International 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.
