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

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
