For both taxis and for delegates who choose to drive, there is a turning circle outside the Crowne Plaza Newcastle where delegates can be dropped off. Vehicles cannot not park here as this is purely a drop-off facility.

If you do choose to drive, please note that parking in Newcastle town centre is limited, and costs for parking are not included in the conference package.
