What strikes me the most is how close to the city centre this stadium is. Just a short walk. Modernised over the years into an impressive venue. Official Newcastle FC shop. Statues of legendary Alan Shearer and Sir Bobby Robson.

The tour guide was very informative. Unfortunately, the pitch was being replaced but still a very nice experience. Beautiful stadium in the city centre easy get to.

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.
