A beating-heart destination to live, work and play
St James Gate lies at the gateway between Newcastle Central Station, Forth Goods Yard and the Quayside West Development Area, which extend to the south and west. This area is soon set to deliver a significant number of new homes, offices, leisure and public realm space.
Our offices will therefore be at the heart of an increasingly important business, leisure and residential district of Newcastle city centre.
We are close to the Redheugh Bridge providing excellent access to the A1 North and South.
We are lucky to have a Tyne and Wear Metro station, a train station and well-serviced bus routes on our doorstep. Getting to work at St James Gate couldn’t be easier.
Parking at St James Gate is easy. There are 365 spaces at Times Square multi-storey car park and more parking is available under our offices.
Your colleagues and clients will benefit from being able to park right outside your office front door, for dropping off and picking up.
Food & drink venues
For incredible, fragrant coffee, we have a number of great baristas nearby, including Starbucks at the Centre for Life, Sourcerer Coffee on Forth Street, the renowned Pink Lane Coffee, or The Jury’s Inn hotel, within our development.
For lunch on the go, we are a short walk from scrumptious food at independent cafe, Deli Central, on Forth Street (try their daily specials or “the best breakfast wrap in the world” according to one Trip Advisor reviewer). Or if you prefer the familiar menu choices at the trusty national food chains, we have M&S Food, Sainsbury’s and Greggs on our doorstep, at Newcastle Central Station.
For client dining, after work drinks, or dinner with your colleagues – you are spoilt for choice for great bars and restaurants within a short walk of St James Gate.
Grab a curry at renowned Indian and Punjabi restaurant, Sachins, on Forth Banks. For authentic South East Asian dishes, cooked by Thai chefs, head towards the Quayside, to Mantra Thai. If it’s a cosy, Parisian style cafe bar you’re looking for – enjoy traditional French cuisine, wines and craft ales at The French Quarter.
Looking to really impress your guests? Head-up St James Boulevard to 3SIXTY Champagne Lounge on the top floor of Newcastle’s highest building, to take in the views.
For a good-old pint and a warm, relaxed welcome and atmosphere – The Blonde Barrel, The Telegraph pub and The Townwall are our recommendations.
