Home away from home

Love taking the 350 mile round trip every home game! Great atmosphere and even better when team performs! Bit pricey in 1892 bar, where our season tickets are but a brilliant view!

Up here as my son who's now 24 supports nufc and hadn't till now done the stadium tour on the new ground. Cost £10 for adults and lasts about 11/2 hours guide is very knowledgable and interesting. You get to see behind the scenes. It's not great for anyone with mobility problems as there's a lot of up and downstairs... More

For Anybody who loves football it's a must. As you drive into the city there it sits lording it over the TOON like a great cathedral. And this is from a Chelsea Fanatic!!!

Last years visits to SJP were mostly disappointing, with bland fare both on and off the pitch. Even a flurry of changes in January didn't make much difference. HOWEVER, the new Director of Football Mr F Kinnear is apparently introduced a Kebab to the menu of attractions. Long overpardew in my opinion.

I've been a season ticket holder here for over 20 years now but have never done the stadium tour before. My kids got me a tour as a gift for fathers day so it was nice change than the usual socks! As much as I know all about the history of the club the tour was still really informative with... More

What a Day - From the outset we were treated like royalty. Keith our personal guide was informative, had a great personality and always listened to our questions. I won't detail the tour because it may spoil it for other visitors. We finished the tour with lunch in an executive box, with a personal lunch waitress Ruth, (the Northumbrian Beef... More

Did the tour during a weekend stay with wife and freinds in Newcastle. Great to visit a fabulous modern stadium, and led round by a very pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide. Got plenty time to look round and take photos, and the whole pace of the tour was very relaxed. Tour took nearly 2 hours all in and was good... More

This ground nevers fail to deliver. Even when things are not going their way the noise that is generated when Newcastle are on the attack is immense. There are good views from the majority of the areas in the Ground but Away fans do not travel if you do not like heights! To make the most of your experience have... More

Absolutely amazing. I dont support newcastle but St James' Park would make you so proud if you did. The ground is one amazing ground, the tour is great and the girl that took us on our tour was brilliant. Deciated fan of Newcastle United. Right away we were made to feel welcome by introducing where we came from and who... More
