How to find us
The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, at the back of the Cathedral. Follow the path left or right to approach the front entrance to the Cathedral. There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 47 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside’s multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.
Newcastle Central Train Station is just five minutes’ walk from Newcastle Cathedral. When leaving Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. You will pass by the monument to George Stephenson, father of Robert Stephenson, as well as the Lit & Phil and The Common Room (formerly known as the Mining Institute). Then follow Collingwood Street to bring you out at Newcastle Cathedral.
