The best way to reach the theatre is by Metro. The theatre is 2 minutes walk from Haymarket Metro Station and the route is fully accessible.

If you are travelling to Newcastle by train it takes 2hrs 50mins from London, 1hr from York and 1hr 20mins from Edinburgh. If you are arriving at Central Station it is a ten-to-fifteen minute walk to Haymarket, or two stops on the Metro.

By Road

If you are driving from outside Newcastle the A1(M) runs from the North to the South and passes close by the city centre. Northern Stage is in the North East of the city, a few minutes drive from St James’ Park. For route planning assistance you could try the AA or the RAC.

Northern Stage does not have its own car park. The nearest car park is on Claremont Road (near the main entrance to Exhibition Park) or the Civic Centre car park on weekends and Bank Holidays (entrance via Sandyford Road). Visit Get Into Newcastle for further details of these.

Northern Stage does not have any disabled parking but if you have a Blue Badge, you can contact the Newcastle University parking team directly on 0191 208 7171 or 0191 222 6000 and ask if they have a Blue Badge space available.

Alternatively, you can drop off patrons at the Stage 2 end of the building on Kings Road, before parking in one of the nearby Public Carparks mentioned above.
