Hard to tell from the outside what lies within but once you start the tour you appreciate what an interesting and impressive ground this. The group was quite large and the tour was supposed to take 90 minutes. Not for one moment did the excellent tour host Howard rush anybody. This was not the number crunching type of tour you...

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the grounds at St. James' Park. Our guide was funny and knowledgeable. The view from the top of the stadium is very impressive and the 'behind the scenes' parts were interesting and nice to see. Definitely good value for money, but it will be a much more enjoyable visit on a sunny day.

I was bought this visit as a birthday treat. A great way to see behind the scenes, very informative. Hope to do the tour again but have more trophies to see next time!

Have been in Northumberland for a week on a family holiday so decided to nip into Newcastle for the stadium tour. I'm a Celtic fan and have no connection with 'The Toon' whatsoever. I've been to a handful of games down the years but this was the first time I'd been behind the scenes. The tour was supposed to last... More

I came here in 2012 for the Olympic football and in 2015 for the magic rugby weekend. Both times we were seated in the slightly more expensive seats that have a slight cushioning, providing with necessary comfort. Both events were superb and thoroughly enjoyable with an excellent atmosphere. The food was reasonable, although the staff didn't change or clean the... More

Came for a stadium tour here yesterday and wasn't disappointed one bit. Our tour guide was Richard and done a brilliant job of educating us about Newcastle United and was very passionate. He also gave me some facts about the team i supported and was friendly, helpful and knowledgable. He showed us the changing rooms and pitch side as well... More

Went here today with my boyfriend who is a massive football fan, however I am not! Despite this I had a very very good time, I was so shocked about how enjoyable it actually was. Our guide Richard was a truly lovely man who blatantly knew everythinggggg about the club & the stadium. If visiting Newcastle I would highly recommend... More

Since its football I have no interest in this place except the rooftop tours, if you get the chance to do this then do, you get fantastic views of the city

Went with a large group of friends for my stag do and I can't rate it highly enough. Carol, our guide, was phenomenal and offered great insight into the stadium and club, not to mention the endless anecdotes of her time following the toon. Carol alone is worth the admission fee
