Getting to the stadium

Getting to the stadium

Our address is:

Kingston Park Stadium
Brunton Road
Kenton Bank Foot
Newcastle upon Tyne
NE13 8AF

We are only five miles from Newcastle city centre, three miles from Newcastle International Airport, two minutes’ drive from the A1 and a five-minute walk from Kingston Park and Bank Foot Metro stations.

As the most northerly Gallagher Premiership Club, we understand that a trip to watch your team take on the Falcons can be a big commitment but with our famous Geordie hospitality and the club only minutes from the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, Kingston Park is well worth a visit!

There are an abundance of hotels around and about the Newcastle, but we would recommend:

The Duke of Wellington Inn, (approximately 13 miles from Kingston Park)

The Angel of Corbridge (approximately 16 miles from Kingston Park)

For further recommendations, visit the NewcastleGateshead Initiative website HERE.


Directions from the A1

  • Take the Airport exit.
  • At the roundabout take the exit signposted for Kingston Park.
  • Go straight over two roundabouts, under the Metro bridge and take the first right onto Brunton Road
  • After 400 metres the stadium is on your left.

Stadium Parking

On non-match days there is ample free parking at Kingston Park Stadium. On first-team match days however parking is limited and does come with a charge. This is available to purchase seasonally or on a match-by-match basis. Your car parking pass entitles you to a parking space on site however, we cannot guarantee parking in a specific area of the stadium. Parking is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. You can purchase carparking through our ticket office or our e-ticketing portal.

We strongly recommend booking in advance as we are unable to guarantee availability for those turning up on the day without a reserved space.

The status of available parking will be regularly communicated across our website and social media channels.

Car parking is currently on sale for all our confirmed fixtures, up until our EPCR Challenge Cup clash with Bennetton on Friday, January 12 (8pm KO).

To book match-day parking please call 0191 2145588 (opt 1), email or visit the club’s online ticketing portal.
