What is the best way to travel in and around Newcastle?
Newcastle is a compact city, so making your way around on foot or on a bike is often a great option.
The Tyne and Wear Metro rail system (much like the London Underground) is one of the best ways for getting around the city – it services the city centre, airport and railway station, and there are stations close to the campus.
If you need to travel a little further, the central train station offers quick connections to London, Scotland and the UK's major cities.
And the Metro has over 60 stations across Newcastle for easy access to a host of locations, including Gateshead, North Tyneside and Sunderland. A bus ticket will cost you around £3 and subway tickets range from around £2 to £4.
You can use your Newcastle University Student ID to buy tickets and travel around the city on the Metro. Prices start from £26 for four weeks.
