Newcastlers, Travel Advice please
Depends where in the borders you’re travelling from but you could get the Hexham train from one of the smaller stations like Stocksfield, Prudhoe etc where parking is free and the train journey is shorter… Although might be better option getting the Metro – will probably get you nearer the start line…Posted 4 years ago
Metro from where, Airport or elsewhere? Coming down from Central Borders so A68 / A696
Just has a quick look at Trains from Hexham but the first isn’t until 10am which will be too late (unless they lay on extra trains that are not showing up on the timetables….)Posted 4 years agowartonMember
could you not drive to south shields, park there, metro to Newcastle, run to South Shields, pick up car, drive home?
If not, I’d park at four lane ends (Longbenton). fairly big multi-story car park there, metro ten minutes to Haymarket metro, which is the closest station to the start. then, coming back from shields on the metro, no need to change metro to get back to four lane ends.
EDIT: and four lane ends is very easy to get to from A1…Posted 4 years ago
Coming down for the Great North Run in a few weeks so expecting it to be busy. Will be travelling down from Borders so thinking will drive down and get train in. Where would it best to Park and Ride from? Thought about Airport but could be expensive to park. Could easily go to Hexham and get train over. Any other thoughts?Posted 4 years agohot_fiatSubscriber
There’s a huge Tesco on the other side of the metro line. It’s filled with 2hour max signs. Dunno how strictly this is enforced though. You can also try Callerton Parkway. Local streets are full of double yellows due to the proximity of the station & rugby ground. If you head further into the estate there is street parking.Posted 4 years ago
