Over 21000 people for a friendly game! Great ground and good stewarding Service at the bar was poor. When I complained that the lager tasted 'off' the girl serving said she knew there was something wrong with it and someone was going to sort it out but she continued to serve other people with the same drink. I got my... More

Me (non Newcastle fan) and husband (a fan) thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Howard, our guide, was super knowledgeable. Tour was very thorough & gave a real inside look at the stadium. I would highly recommend it!

I am not a football fan, but I must say having taken a tour of St James park I loved it, our guide was I think a lady called collete who made the experience really enjoyable. As I said I don't follow football but this tour catered to everyone I feel. With insight into the world of soccer and the... More

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!
