Not only in a fantastic location just minutes off the A1M, but the Gateshead International Stadium also provides free car parking for use on the day with many other paid car parks within minutes walk.
From the South (Quickest route)
At the end of the A1(M) Junction 65, take the A194(M) towards South Shields. At the end of the A194(M) take the A184 towards Gateshead. The stadium is situated three miles further along this road on the right hand side.
From the South (Taking in the Angel of the North)
Leave the A1 at the A167 turn off and take the A167 towards Gateshead South. You will pass the Angel of the North on your left hand side. On reaching the large roundabout at the junction with the A184, turn right onto the A184 itself. The stadium is further down the A184 on the left hand side.
There are three car parks at the stadium which are free to use.
The stadium has its own Metro stop called Gateshead Stadium, which is a five minute walk away. This stop is around a ten minute journey away from Newcastle Central railway station, which is also the nearest mainline station. Adam Hosdon a visiting Stockport County fan informs me; ‘Metro trains for Gateshead Stadium are bound for South Shields or South Hylton’. Whilst Jonathan Beverley a visiting Southport fan provides these walking directions; ‘As you come out of the Metro station, turn right, and just after you pass over the railway line turn right again onto a footpath which takes you straight through a new housing estate. Keep going straight ahead until you reach the main road, and the ground is just on the other side of the road over the pedestrian crossing’.
