Directions for SJP:

By Metro: 

Nearest station is St. James.  Come out of the station, and look behind you. If coming from the airport, alight at Haymarket or Monument Stations and follow the crowds.   

Here's a map of the Metro network and service updates appear
online here

NB:
Do not get on a metro at the Central Station that says St James - it goes via the Coast and takes about an hour ! If you cannot walk, you need to change at Monument for a metro running the short distance (one stop) to the football ground.

By Rail: 

Nearest station is Newcastle Central -a 15 minute walk as follows:
 
Direct route - Come out of the station and cross the street in front of you, and up the alley to the left of the bakers. This take you past a pub called The Forth and brings you out on Clayton Street. Cross straight over and continue up the final section of the alley. You are now on Westgate Road.

To your right is a paper shop and immediately past it is a paved walkway (complete with odd-shaped ornamental metal cone) which stretches up the hill - at the top of this you will be able to see the ground to your right. Either continue towards the ground or deviate right, which is Stowell Street - home of the local Chinese community and numerous fine eating establishments.

Route via the City Centre -  Come out of the station and cross the street in front of you, turn right and then next left up Grainger Street.  After a few minutes walk you will see a Nelson's Column type monument in the centre - that's Grey's Monument that is.

Turn left up Blackett Street, through the 'tunnel' and straight across the roundabout (turning right at the roundabout up Percy Street takes you to a variety of pubs) up Gallowgate and St James' Park will be clearly visible to your right.

Away supporters are housed at the North End of SJP (in Level 7 up an endless series of steps), following the direct route above brings you to the South West side of the ground (or South East if via City Centre).

Continue to walk along the road that winds along to the ground and then walk underneath the new offices/stand with the ground on your right. The away turnstiles are past the main entrance and underneath the North Stand (aka Sir John Hall Stand). Be prepared for a canny climb though, via numerous levels of stairs.

Away buses / coaches park immediately to the North of this point on Barrack Road. 

By Road (sat navvies input "NE1 4ST")

Parking at the Ground:

None, save for a couple of pay and display ones next to the Metro station and Strawberry pub.

Like most British cities, on-street parking is available round the edge of the centre, but the threat of car crime and changing parking rules is an ever-present one.

Parking Suggestions:

Near the Arena/Life Centre, to the east of the Railway Station (limited).

Off the Westgate Road - North end and to East off St.James' Boulevard (limited).

Past the Royal Victoria Infirmary beside the University/Exhibition Park.

At the Railway Station itself (limited space and expensive).

Multi-storey car parks on
Dean Street and near Haymarket bus station.

At Newcastle Civic Centre (aka Sandyford Square car park).

Park and travel in on the metro from various stations, including Four Lane Ends, Northumberland Park (handy for Tyne Tunnel) and Callerton Parkway (near the airport).

Park & Ride:

Not currently operating
