  • What can you say? It's St.James' Park, home of Newcastle United. It's a beautiful stadium especially when full. A historic landmark which has changed hugely over the years and meant so much to so many. If you're a football fan visiting Newcastle you should visit.
  • Great stadium which can be seen from all areas of the city. Gallowgate end is the loudest. 1892 bar is worth the extra money if you're arriving a little early and fancy a half time drink-they're ready for you at half time.
  • It's a fairly old football stadium. Never been for a tour, but the conference etc facilities are good and it's usually in good nick. Deducted one star as a specific staircase had vomit down multiple flights and it wasn't cleaned before the next match - unacceptable, but seemed to be a one off.
  • Very hospitable, Huddersfield Town came to visit and were generously given three points to go home with! Very impressive stadium, good atmosphere and the highest I've ever sat in a football stadium. The away end is up a, literally, breathtaking number of steps but the view is actually pretty good if you don't mind the footballers looking like ants!
  • Great atmosphere during match day. If you are a football fan, please go there once in your lifetime. Or else you will regret
