Bus Travel in Newcastle

The jewel of the North East is just itching to be explored

Newcastle upon Tyne is a port city in the North East which acts as a national culture and commerce hub. Locals are known for their friendly banter, much-loved by visitors, and the city is home to two universities, acting as a prime destination for students too. With its shops, restaurants and nightlife, as well as St. James Park football ground, there's plenty to keep you busy! A key highlight is a trip to Hadrian's Wall, the Roman ruin, and equally popular are the dreamy beaches of Northumberland.

We offer over 30 bus routes which cover the whole of the city and connect Newcastle with destinations such as Berwick-upon-Tweed, Alnwick and Blyth. A bus is a perfect solution to avoid the hassle of finding a parking space, so why not give it a try?
