Newcastle United: Club Profile

The classic David vs. Goliath cup encounter that put our humble club firmly on the footballing map? You betcha; the 1997-8 FA Cup battle that had the world’s focus come down squarely on us. No matter what that Shearer fella says, it never crossed the line in the replay. No problem, however; not after our convincing 3-1 win in the 2010-1 FA Cup. And ‘convincing’ ain’t doing that enough justice.

Travel Information – Distance: 248 miles

By Road:
You can stick with the A1/A1(M) for most of your journey to Newcastle, making it a relatively simple trip when taking into consideration the time it's likely to take you - around four hours on a good day. Travel north for about 239 miles until you reach the junction for the A184, where things start to happen.

Come off the A1 and follow the ramp around onto the A184. As the road starts to bend round to the right and then left over a roundabout, it becomes the A189 and you want to remain on this for nearly a mile; crossing the Tyne in the process.

Bear right into St James Boulevard, which is still the A189, before a left turn after half a mile takes you onto Gallowgate.

There are a fair few Pay and Display car parks in the area, being a central location; these are probably the most convenient option.

The walk isn't a long one by any stretch. Come out of the station onto Neville Street and cross straight over, going up Bewick Street almost directly in front of the train station. At the end of this thoroughfare, turn right onto Clayton Street West.

Before you come to Westgate Road, take a left to cut off the corner and head towards the Western Walls. Keep going up here, before turning right up Stowell Street. Continue along to the end and cross over Gallowgate.
