St James' Park, Newcastle upon Tyne

Take a guided tour of the 52,400-seat home of soccer club Newcastle United. You'll learn the history of this storied and locally-beloved franchise, venture to the highest point of the stadium, and visit the home dressing room, media suite, and dugouts. Book your tickets beforehand by phone or online. St James' Park was also used as a venue in the 2012 Olympics and will be a venue for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Try to get tickets if the team's in town when you are, though you might have to pay more than face value.

  • It was my first time here watching my favorite team live and the experience couldn't have been any more unforgettable. The atmosphere on match day is insane, and the layout of the stadium makes it easy to move around. The food options for half time are quite good and the official club store has a huge variety of items that you can buy. The stewards were very friendly and helpful and overall, it was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life.
  • We attended for the Rugby League Magic weekend, a great Stadium with good facilities. The Stadium is well sign posted and easy to get to on foot from the city. Lots to entertain you post match in the city and a great place to visit.
  • Great iconic stadium! However, the catering is very overpriced and not surprising to be honest, as i guess they know there is people willing to pay those prices. Electric atmosphere too! Only gripe is some parts look a little run down, and it could do with a bit of a deep clean. However, a great stadium, we should be so proud.
  • Fantatsic place. Highly recommend the rooftop tour. If you're not keen on heights then the stadium tour is just as amazing. Steeped in History. I could visit this Ground everyday and not get bored.
  • Loved the tour. Guide was engaging and great to listen to. Pay the little extra for the food option at Nine bar afterwards. Good way to spend an afternoon in Newcastle
