How to get to your training venue at Sunderland

One of the best ways to commute to the Clarion Hotel Newcastle South for your training sessions would be to use a train. These get you fairly close to the venue. Some of the train stations worth considering include:

East Boldon Train Station
East Boldon NE36 0LP

Chester-le-Street Train Station
Station Road, Chester-le-Street DH3 3EE

Heworth Train Station
Heworth, Gateshead NE10 0LW

Out of the listed options, we'd suggest you go with East Boldon Train Station. This will put you a little over 2 miles from the venue, which is a distance you can quickly cover by taking a taxi. There are two routes available from the train station. Unfortunately, there aren't any buses in the area servicing that route. If you'd like to walk, it'll take you about 50 minutes to cover the 2.5-mile distance to the venue.


If you prefer heading to training sessions using your own vehicle, then you'll be glad to know that the venue has a free car park. If you are heading to South Shields for lunch, then you can stay at either of these safe and secure options:

The Word Car Park
River Dr, South Shields NE33 1JN

Charlotte Street Car Park
73 Fowler St, South Shields NE33 1NT

Forum Car Park
Elton St W, Wallsend NE28 8QU


The Sunderland area has a Walk Score of 38/100. That's because there aren't that many places for you to visit on foot since they're all spread far apart. Traveling around by car would suit you better if you'd like to explore the area.


If you'd like to find somewhere in Sunderland to stay for the duration of your training, start by looking into the training venue. Choosing to stay here will give you access to cosy accommodation with additional perks like the venue's free Wi-Fi network, swimming pool, and fitness centre.

Other options located close to the venue include the Holiday Inn Express Newcastle - Metro Centre at Clasper Way, Swalwell, Newcastle upon Tyne NE16 3BE, the Travelodge Newcastle Whitemare Pool at Whitemare Pool, A194, A194 Whitemare Pool, Wardley, Gateshead NE10 8YB, or even the Holiday Inn Newcastle - Jesmond at Jesmond Rd, Jesmond, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 1PR. You can check out other deals by checking here.


This training venue is located close to several eateries offering a variety of cuisines. You can choose to get a healthy meal from The Lofthouse Deli at 4A Stanhope Rd, South Shields NE33 4BU. If you're in a rush, then you can walk to nearby locations like the McDonald's at Boldon Leisure Park, B1298, Kirkstall Road, Boldon Colliery NE35 9PB, or The Grill at Boldon Business Park, Tyne & Wear NE35 9PE, less than ten minutes from the venue.

You can also take a short trip to South Shields where you'll come across the Man V Food barbecue restaurant at 35 Hudson St, South Shields NE34 0AD, serving up burgers, sandwiches, burritos, and more. There's also Frydays Fish Bar and Grill at 27 Smithy St, South Shields NE33 1DA where you'll come across several fresh fried fish and chips varieties.
