Ed Sheeran At St James’ Park Travel Information

Home > Tyne & Wear > Newcastle upon Tyne > St James’ Park

Singer songwriter Ed Sheeran performing at Newcastle upon Tyne‘s St James’ Park this weekend.

If you are staying with us we have the latest public transport information to help you get to and from St James’ Park with ease.

Ed Sheeran St James' Park Newcastle Upon Tyne NE1 4ST June 2018

Travel advice from Tyne & Wear Metro is as follows…

What’s the best way to get to the Ed Sheeran concerts at St James’ Park in Newcastle?
We have frequent trains running before and after the Ed Sheeran concert that will get you right to the stadium. There will be at least four-five trains an hour from everywhere on the Metro system.

Are there extra Metro services for the Ed Sheeran concerts?
Yes. Extra Metro services will be provided before and after the three concerts as the crowds build up, to make sure you have an easy journey. Do leave plenty of time because trains and stations will be busy and you want to enjoy the show.

Will there be later Metro services after the concerts end?
Yes. Metro services will be extended for an extra hour after each concert ends to ensure everyone can make their way home after Ed Sheeran has come off stage.

Can we Park and Ride with Metro?
Yes. There are big car parks at Callerton and Kingston Park (for the A1 from the North or A69 from the West), Four Lane Ends and Northumberland Park (A19 and A189 from the North), Heworth (A194 and A19 from the South) and Stadium of Light (Sunderland area). Car Parks only cost £1 and will stay open until after the last train has run. It’s a lot easier than driving into the city centre and finding somewhere to park.

What city centre stations are best to use?
You can get off at any one of four stations near the stadium – Haymarket, Monument, Central Station and St James are all within a few minutes walk of St James’ Park. There’s plenty of pubs and places to eat near all four stations.

What’s the best Metro ticket to purchase?
Save time, buy a Day Ticket from a Metro station ticket machine for just £3-£5.10 depending on which station you board, or £1.30 for children aged 16 and under. You can use the same ticket all day which means you won’t need to queue up at Metro ticket machine after the concert.

Will city centre Metro stations be busy after the concert?
Yes – but we’ll have staff at stations to manage queues and make sure everyone is looked after. At Haymarket and Monument we will be closing some entrances to make sure queues run smoothly and safely through a single route. Listen for station announcements and guidance from our staff.

How do I keep in touch with all the latest Metro travel updates?
All the live Metro updates will be on our Twitter page Tyne & Wear Metro (opens in a new window). To plan your journey you can use the Live Travel Map.
