The Rugby Groud Guide

Travel

Air: Newcastle International Airport is a very short cab ride away from the   stadium, and is linked to the city centre by the Metro, or directly to the ground, getting off at bank Foot station, NOT Kingston Park.

 

Rail: East Coast Trains run from London Kings Cross (3 hours) , while First Trans Pennine Express run services from Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool.

From Newcastle Central Station: Take the Tyne & Wear Metro from the Station, and head north-east for the Kingston Park Station.

Bank Foot Metro station is actually closer to the ground. It is a   20-minute journey from Newcastle train station, and the stadium is a five-minute walk away.

 

Road: From the South (A1 or M62/M1/A1) :

Leave M1 and turn right on M62 towards A1. Follow A1 to Newcastle Airport   Junction.

Take the Kingston Park exit off roundabout, straight ahead at next two   mini roundabouts, pass under bridge, and take right into Brunton Road. Round the   bend and the ground is on the left.

From the North (A1)

Follow A1 to Newcastle Airport Junction, then as per from the South

From West:

A69 Eastbound until it joins the A1.Turn North and take second   exit marked Newcastle Airport Junction. Then as per from the South.

Parking: Parking at the stadium is limited so it’s best to head for   nearby Kingston Park shopping centre and take the short walk.

Park and ride facilities are also available at a number of local Metro stations, offering all day parking from as little as £1 just a short train ride from the Stadium.

 

Bus: The X47 bus runs regularly from Monument in the city centre to Kingston Park Shopping Centre
