“Tour of the Stadium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

A good day out with family and friends. It was a really good day the guide was very informative, even though there is not much Silver on show he had plenty stories which everyone enjoyed.
The group was varied in ages from small children up to pensioners .
Also a trip down memory lane for one of the family, as he was once a ball boy decades ago. Thought the special touch of a visit to the Shop after the tour to receive a Certificate and money off vouchers for items purchased in the Stadium shop.

“Up in the clouds!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013

Went here to watch City triumph in the league cup and never thought the stairs were going to end up to level 7 in the Leazes stand. Never been so high up in a stadium since I went to the Nou Camp years ago. Great atmosphere created in the away end and throughout the stadium despite the game not being the best. £4 for a bottle of Coors about what you expect to pay. Plenty of staff on in the food areas, but they were fairly slow at serving. Paid £3.60 for a balti chicken pie, which I wouldn't have again. Too much pastry, but very warm. Overall a nice stadium and no hassle in and around the stadium.

“Great Day out”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.
