With Newcastle situated on the North East coast there are two major roads into the city, a good rail link, and the airport,
not forgetting the river.
Arriving by air
The airport is at the north of the city, with two hotels to cater for your needs. To get into the town centre you
will have to take the bus, taxi or metro. These are all available at the airport terminus buildings.
This will bring you in via the Central Station on the south of the city. There are a variety of hotels in
this part of the town, the County Hotel being the nereast, just over the road.
There are two major roads to the city. The A1 from the north and south and the A69 from Carlise/Hexham.
You will have to leave the A1 when arriving from the north. There are a number of exits from the south - take
the Gateshead exit then follow the signs.
This will take you directly into the city to Gallowgate Bus Station on the west of the town, just opposite St. James
Park, Newcastle United's football ground.
By the river
Turn into the Tyne and follow it to Newcastle.
