Life’s location is hard to beat – we’re just a couple of minutes’ walk from Newcastle Central Station for groups travelling by train or Metro. Just on the edge of the city centre, we're easily walkable from town, too. 

Coming by coach? You can use our on-site coach drop-off point.

If you're driving to Life, the Sat Nav reference is NE1 4EP.

Additional car parking is available just round the corner at Times Square Car Park. Vehicle height restrictions: 7ft or 2.1m in height. Limited spaces for taller vehicles outside the main multi-storey car park are also available.

Plenty of local buses also stop just next to Central Station.
