Newcastle University’s main campus is at the heart of the city – please be aware that the University has several campuses around the city, and the conference will be taking place in the Armstrong Building on the main campus (no. 22 on the campus map)
The conference dinner will be held at Blackfriars Restaurant after the sessions on Thursday 20th (https://www.blackfriarsrestaurant.co.uk/).
On campus, essential facilities (cafés, bookshop, Co-op, cash point) can be found within a few minutes walk of the Armstrong Building.
Getting to Newcastle
Newcastle is well connected to national and international travel networks – see details on the university webpages here:
NOTE: there is no parking on campus, except a limited number of slots for those with mobility issues. A comprehensive list of city-centre car parks and information on park-and-ride can be found here (https://www.ncl.ac.uk/study/meet/travel/) Many city-centre hotels also offer parking options.
The centre of Newcastle between the central train station and main campus is pedestrianized, so the quickest and most pleasant way around the city is often on foot. The campus can be reached in 20 minutes through the city centre, via sights including Grey’s monument, the Theatre Royal, the Laing Art Gallery, the food stalls of Grainger Market (with amazing East Asian food and Mac ‘n’ cheese), and the historic Central Arcade.
The Tyne and Wear metro system links the central station to the main university campus (Haymarket stop) in under 10 minutes.

Newcastle is well served by buses within the centre and beyond, providing links across the North East. NB. as the city centre and campus are largely pedestrianized, this may not be the most efficient mode of transport, depending on the location of your accommodation.
