Kingston Park has a capacity of 10,200. Gosforth moved here in 1990 and later evolved into Newcastle Falcons. The ground is about a 10-15 minute walk from Bank Foot Metro station.
The main (west) stand is covered and has a good view, except for the wheelchair spaces in front of the stand, which are slightly below pitch level. Great if you like looking at the players legs and enjoy having people walking up and down in front of you throughout the game.
The south stand is covered and standing only, has a great atmosphere and there is an extensive bar area under the stand.
The east stand is small, and houses the players’ changing rooms.
The north stand is exposed to the elements and is standing only. But it is the cheapest option by far.
