How to get here

Scotswood Garden is based in the grounds of the John Marley Centre in Scotswood. The garden can be accessed easily on foot, by bike, and by public transport. There is car parking available at the Centre.

Our offices are temporarily in the John Marley Centre, a large building adjacent to the garden. This is accessed from Muscott Grove, NE15 6TT which is just off Whickham View. The garden can also be accessed through this route.

Buses 30, 31 and 38 stop on Whickham View just outside of the John Marley Centre (the name of the stop is Muscott Grove).

All three bus services can be joined immediately outside Newcastle Central Station. Journey times vary between 20 and 30 minutes and the services run regularly throughout the day.

The Stagecoach number 1 bus to Slatyford also stops close to the garden on Denton Road just past Excelsior Academy. From the bus stop, walk up the hill to the roundabout and turn right along Whickham View (past a small Sainsburys). Then turn right onto Muscott Grove and enter via the John Marley Centre. Details of all local bus services can be found at the Nexus website.

The garden is a short walk or cycle from Hadrian's Wall Path (a long distance footpath and national cycle route that follows the route of the Roman Wall). Cycle racks are available at the garden.
