Getting here

Life is located in Times Square, just a two minute walk from Newcastle Central train and Metro station.


Driving? Times Square Car Park is just around the corner.

​​​​​​​

The sat nav reference for the car park is NE1 4AD (opposite Jurys Inn hotel). Look out for Centre for Life and/or Times Square Car Park signage to direct you.


Plenty of local buses stop just next to Central Station. Visit our offers page to find out about discounts for those travelling to Life by public transport.

There are also cycle racks in Times Square for you to lock up your bike. ​​​​​​​

"Fantastic place for children and adults to explore and engage in science. You can spend all day here without being rushed."
