Newcastle Airport is situated approx 5-6 miles North West of the city centre, transport to and from the airport is either by taxi, Metro or hire car.  Expect to pay around £15.00 for a pre-booked taxi (£23 in a black cab) and £2.90 for a one way Metro to any city centre station.  Journey times by taxi will vary depending on the time of day, but should be no more than 30 mins. Metro trains take 25 minutes and run every 12 mins on weekdays (all trains from the airport go to Newcastle City Centre and on to Sunderland - for destinations to South Shields change at South Gosforth or any of the city centre stations).

Or you can use a car hire at Newcastle Airport which will give you more space and opportunities to go anywhere you want. 

For departing travellers, there are parking facilities at Newcastle airport.  They have off-site parking (where a shuttle service is provided free of charge to and from the airport), and also 'chauffeur' service (drop and pick up at the terminal building). 

The only mainline train station is Central Station, situated to the southern end of the city centre. Newcastle has direct services to/from many major cities including London, Liverpool, Plymouth, Southampton, Manchester & Edinburgh. When you arrive at the station, you can opt to use the Metro, a taxi (make sure it's licensed) or the bus, depending on your destination, or, of course, you can walk.

The coach station is located close to Central Station, on the other side of the Centre for Life - turn left out of the Station and 5-10 minutes walk.

By car, you'll typically arrive from the A1, A69, A1058 or the A19. There are plenty of parking garages in the city centre. Just find the nearest one to your hotel or use the hotel car park. Be warned, arriving or departing in the hours 7-9:30am and 4-6:30pm will mean you'll hit the rush hour in Newcastle. Delays of up to 30 minutes to cross the road bridges and to pass through the Tyne Tunnel are nearly a daily occurrence.
