If you are travelling from London, we are only about three hours by train, and indeed just 90 minutes to Scotland. We are also very accessible by motorway from all parks of the United Kingdom.
The nearest international airport is ‘Newcastle International Airport’ and serves well over 70 destinations. Simply put, we are easy to get to, which means we are an obvious choice of destination where friends, families and work colleagues can gather together easily to celebrate and enjoy any occasion.
In Newcastle itself, getting around is super easy with the Metro serving a wide range of destinations as well as a frequent, low cost bus network. For more independent travel you can also enjoy taxi travel with 24 hour services available at the central station and Grey Street.
Across the River Tyne you’ll find the city of Gateshead, so combined the two cities of Newcastle and Gateshead are a pairing that offer endless places to eat, visit, discover and enjoy.
