Getting to an Open Day

Travelling to Newcastle for one of our upcoming Open Days? Here are five travel options to choose from.

1. By air

Newcastle International Airport is only seven miles from the city centre, with regular flights to Aberdeen, London and Bristol.

Once you’ve touched down, you can travel by Metro from the airport to Haymarket station (the nearest stop to the University) in just 25 minutes!


2. By rail

Newcastle Central Station is just three hours from London by train and is directly accessible from London King’s Cross, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The easiest way to campus from the station is by Metro to Haymarket Station, which takes about four minutes. Alternatively, you could also take a 15 minute walk through town to get to our campus. Our student guides (wearing yellow t-shirts) will be on hand, so don’t worry – you won’t get lost!

3. By road

Newcastle is easily accessible by road via the A1 from the north and south and the A69 from the west. It’s also the best way to get to the Angel of the North!

Parking on campus is limited and only available for disabled visitors. However, there are city-centre car parks and ‘park and ride’ services available. Click here to find out more.


4. By sea

The International Ferry Terminal at North Shields is approximately seven miles east of Newcastle, where ferries travel daily to and from Amsterdam, operated by DFDS Seaways.

You can then take a bus to Newcastle city centre or hop on the metro at Percy Main to get to the city centre.

5. By coach or bus

The main coach station for long distance journeys is on St James Boulevard in the centre of the city and is only 15 minutes walk from the University. You can join a coach or bus for Newcastle at Gatwick and Heathrow airports, and from Victoria Coach Station.
