Trains to Newcastle

Situated on Neville Street close to the River Tyne, Newcastle Central Station is one of the busiest railway stations in Britain. Queen Victoria opened the historic Grade One listed building in 1850 and in 2014 refurbishment work to enhance the wonderful Victorian architectural features was completed. Newcastle station is close to the Discovery Museum of science and local history, the O2 Academy live music venue and the Centre for Life biotechnology village. Trains to Newcastle from the south mean lucky passengers get stunning views of several of the bridges over the River Tyne as well as the renovated quaysides at Newcastle and Gateshead, now thriving cosmopolitan centres featuring public spaces, restaurants and bars. Newcastle Central Station is just to the west of the Castle Keep, an impressive stone tower that is one of the few remaining sections of the original medieval fortress which gave the city its name.

Station details & facilities

Since 2014, a number of improvements have made it easier for passengers to navigate the station itself. Access points have been moved and clearer signage and a simpler layout help passengers to get quick and easy access to essential travel information, such as Newcastle train timetables. New lifts and escalators ensure that getting around the station is easy, while both waiting rooms and toilet facilities have been improved and undercover parking for cycles has been increased.
