What a brilliant place to see anything epic. Steeped in black and white history the scale and enormity of its hallowed grounds are legendary. Home to the magpies since 1880. The pitch and scale of the 52k seater theatre are immense. We have been working there this weekend for the Rugby league World Cup for the super league festival and it's been brilliant. Thanks to the site and the people working there for some great footage for our film.
The size and scale of this stadium really is incredible. It has a car park and metro station underneath. Facilities look very League 1 in the concourse, but there's loads of leg room and the seats are comfy. Obviously cold as it's in the North East, so wrap up warm.

First time at this football ground. For away fans, I hope you don't have a fear of heights. A very good view and the Newcastle fans are as friendly as you'd expect. A great stadium for a city that really loves its football. Didn't get the result I'd have liked, but that football.

Did a stadium tour with my son who is 8. It was a fantastic experience for both of us. Staff are so friendly from the people on reception to the guide who took us around. Brilliant experience for both supporters of NUFC and non supporters. So much history about Newcastle and it's players

Fantastic stadium tour! One of the best we've been on. Our tour guide Michael was not only informative but had a great sense of humour!

History (from Wikipedia)

St James' Park is a football stadium in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is the home of Premier League club Newcastle United F.C. With a seating capacity of 52,305 seats, it is the eighth largest football stadium in England.

St James' Park has been the home ground of Newcastle United since 1892 and has been used for football since 1880.
[2] Throughout its history, the desire for expansion has caused conflict with local residents and the local council.[3] This has led to proposals to move at least twice in the late 1960s,[4][5] and a controversial 1995 proposed move to nearby Leazes Park. Reluctance to move has led to the distinctive lop-sided appearance of the present-day stadium's asymmetrical stands.[6]

Besides club football, St James' Park has also been used for 
international football, at the 2012 Olympics,[7] for the rugby league Magic Weekendrugby union World CupPremiership and England Test matches, charity football events, rock concerts, and as a set for film and reality television.
