Central Park - Newcastle | Visiting with Kids


Central Park - Newcastle | Visiting with Kids

Central Park is not just Newcastle's largest beer garden, it's actually the largest beer garden in the North East. Set to reopen this April with bookings being available from 14 April. 

This year it's bigger and better than ever before from this multi-story entertainment venue and you can expect lots going on including regular pop ups and special events. 

Located in Times Square Newcastle, just outside of Life Science Centre, it's super easy to reach by train, metro or bus (just alight at Central Station, turn left as you leave the station and walk for a few minutes, you won't be able to miss it).

Summer Of Sport
At Central Park

Newcastle United Vs Leicester City
Live on the Big Screen!
Sunday 17 April 

Kick-off @ 14:15PM

We're showing Premier League action at Central Park on our giant screen at Times Square with live DJs keeping the atmosphere going before and after the games!

Join us at Times Square and support the Toon! Full commentary will be on and there are also plenty of smaller screens in our new covered & heated sports bar Parkside which also features our new food court with Brack Burger, Acropolis and Gingerinos.

Under 18's welcome on site but must be accompanied by an adult. 
I imagine Central Park might get a little lively during match days. My three kids are all aged 11+ now and I'd feel fine taking them during a match day / I think they'd enjoy the atmosphere. However those with younger kids may want to give it a miss.
