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.

  • Easy to find and easy to get to via public transport. Sat up in the clouds had a great view but was a nightmare going up all the stairs. Food standard. Overally priced. Can get a beer at half time limited selection though. Had a good day out.
  • Absolutely lovely stadium but I would say that as I am a Newcastle United Supporter and Season Ticker Holder haha but here are some photos
  • Nice ground friendly staff bit pricey tho
  • Amazing stadium sadly outside is not very disabled friendly. The ground is surrounded with steep hills and cobbles, and the steps up the ground are steep.
  • SaintJames Park, Theatre to legends of the game in years gone by, Mecca to the ever faithful, ever hope filled, Passionate, long suffering, occasionally belligerent masses. SJP dominates the skyline offering seldom matched views of true urban beauty, especially on clear mornings or evenings as the sun meets the horizon looking towards the river Tyne. No one yet put it into better words so to quote a few lines... "It is the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It is a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father's hand, gawping at the hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and.. Without being able to do a thing about it. falling in love." Sir Bobby Robson. ... Hold on tight son it all begins here
