The easiest way to get to Tynemouth by public transport is by Metro from the centre of Newcastle. It is on the yellow line, which makes a loop from St James’ Metro station east following the line of the Tyne to Tynemouth and then turns north up the coast to Whitley Bay and then back into the centre via the northern suburbs and through to Gateshead and to the towns south of the Tyne beyond – a sort of back to front Q shape. This means that you have a choice of routes, both taking about half an hour. Which route you take may depend on your starting point in the city centre – check the map on the website and see which works best for you.

Tynemouth is in the outer zone of the system for fares calculation, Zone C, so you’ll need an all zones ticket – currently (August 2015) £3.40 for a single journey or £4.60 for a Day Saver which can be used for multiple journeys throughout the day (there is no return ticket as such). As with all Metro journeys you must buy your ticket from a machine at the station before boarding – recently the machines have been modernised to take card payments as well as coins or notes.

Trains run roughly every five minutes but less frequently on a Sunday and in the evenings. The last train back to Newcastle is just after 11.00 pm (later trains run but not all the way to the centre) so keep an eye on the time if you come here for a night out.

The Metro station is located in Huntingdon Place, a couple of minutes’ walk west of the landward end of Front Street and about seven/eight minutes from the sea, the Priory and other sights. As well as functioning as a station it is home to a popular market.
