Fans of the Magpies have now got another way to enjoy the hallowed ground of St. James' Park, as you can now take it all in from 150 ft above pitch side with this Newcastle United Stadium Rooftop Tour for Two. The incredible views inside and around St James Park all add up to an awesome, spine-tingling and exhilarating journey. Those on the tour will get unprecedented access and magnificent views of the city and beyond, in what in many ways is a sightseeing tour rather than a St James Park stadium tour. That said, you do get a superb, if not distant, view of the pitch. With binoculars in hand you can try to spot some of Newcastle's other landmarks and sights, from the Civic Centre and Leazes Park to the north and The Baltic, The Sage and bridges Millennium and Tyne to the south, and the distant North Sea ironically to the east, there's plenty of breathtaking sights to take in while you're standing around way above this special city.
Need to Know
On arrival at St James' Park (in good time for your pre-booked tour) you'll sign in at reception before starting off with a short briefing on what to expect along with health and safety guidelines and a chance to see some of the famous landmarks in the briefing room. You will be given a hard hat and hi visibility-vest to wear for the duration of the tour. Binoculars will also be available. Once up on the roof two expert rooftop tour guides will provide a running commentary, at three viewing platforms, of interesting aspects of the city skyline and beyond. Your tour will finish on pitch side so you can see a different perspective of the roof and the height you have just visited, with more great photo opportunities.
