HOW TO GET HERE BY BUS
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 within walking distance.
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.

HOW TO GET HERE BY AIR
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.
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.
HOW TO GET HERE BY TRAIN
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.
