    Huge! The ground is an easy short walk from the city centre. The statues are interesting. Easy access to the excellent metro. Worth a look.  more »

  • 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
