Travelling from Newcastle Airport
Taxis are available outside the airport at all times every day of the week. A taxi to the University should cost around £15 per journey; however it is normal to ask how much the journey will cost before you get into the car. You should be given a price which would normally not vary by more than one or two pounds. If you use airport taxis – see link above – you can pay by cheque, cash or all major credit cards. If you use another taxi company you would normally have to pay cash so please ensure you have sterling with you.
Taking a taxi is simple – just step outside the airport and there should be taxis waiting. Alternatively, you can ask at any airport information desk and they will help you.
Newcastle airport is on the city's Metro line and has a Metro station within the airport itself, putting it just 25 minutes from the city centre. The metro services are frequent – trains run every 12 minutes on average, and are the quickest and least expensive way to get to Newcastle. For the University you should take the Metro to Haymarket Metro Station; the city campus is under five minute’s walk from here.
Directions from Haymarket to City Campus
There are regular bus services from the airport terminal to Newcastle city centre.
Full timetables for Metro and bus services can be found on the Nexus website.
We hope that you have a safe and pleasant journey to Newcastle and look forward to welcoming you to Northumbria University.
