Tips for travelling here
Please support us in our environmental programme of work and walk, cycle or use public transport whenever it’s possible for you to do so.
Make your visit a great value day out by travelling to our venues by Metro. Up to three children aged 11 and under can travel for free on the Metro and the Shields Ferry with a fare-paying adult. Save on adult Metro fares too by using Pop Pay As You Go.
Plan your journey in advance and track your Metro train in real time with the Pop app. Search 'Nexus Pop' on Google Play or the App Store.
