Travel and Accommodation


The Newcastle University campus is very conveniently located to a variety of public transport services and the city itself is serviced by an Airport (Newcastle International Airport) that offers flights across Europe and beyond.

The Metro line, which covers most of the Tyne & Wear area (including Central Station and the Airport), stops opposite the Kings Gate campus at Haymarket.

Metro maps can be found here:

The main bus station for the city is also located opposite the university campus and we are located a mile away from Central Station.

For more information about the Metro and Bus services, please visit the Nexus Website:

Unfortunately, due to limited availability we cannot generally offer on-site parking for the conference, however there are a number of parking facilities available nearby that can be used for those delegates travelling by car.

The closest NCP car parks to the campus are:

  • John Dobson Street (NE1 8HL)
  • New Bridge Street (NE1 8AB)
  • Carliol Square (NE1 6UL)
