“Great Day out”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Firstly this is based on a review of watching football at St James Park.

The stadium is huge and visible for miles around. The architecture is amazing and the transformation of the stadium from the 80's is noticeably visible.

The atmosphere is ok, but the bars around the ground are good and the food is ok.

The only downside to the stadium is the walk to the very top of the ground if you are on level 7, but with a ground that big, it is to be expected.

Anyone visiting the north east should try and take in a game, to mark the ground off the list, which is one of the best in the UK.

“First time and won't be the last”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

My partner supports newcastle and as it was our first time in newcastle we went and watched them play against Leeds. The stadium is massive and is in the city centre. The atmosphere is brilliant. I would recommend visiting here even if you do not support them.

“Home of the Toon Army”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Couldn't be easier to get to as it's in the centre of the city. The atmosphere is electric & the ground is almost always full to capacity. Have you heard 52000 of the Geordie nation singing for their team? If you're there on a non-match day take the guided tour as it's great value for money.
