Hi! Would appreciate public transport options to reach The Adephi B&B in Jesmond...or nearest train,bus stop. we will be arriving into Newcastle airport 8.30 am. Would also appreciate an aproximation of time for the trip. Thanks for your advice
You can take the Metro from the airport direct to Jesmond. From the map, it seems the nearest station to your B&B is West Jesmond. That is a journey of nine stops and should take no more than 20 minutes (probably less). The trains will be frequent at that time of day. However it looks like about a 10 minute walk from the station to the B&B, giving a total journey time of about 30 minutes
If you will have heavy bags or have walking difficulties you might want to take a taxi from the airport instead but that will cost considerably more. I reckon you'll pay over £30 as opposed to £3.20 per person on the Metro. You should be able to do the journey in a similar time or a little less (it will be rush hour so traffic will be heavier, but that isn't usually a major problem in Newcastle).
As a compromise you might take the Metro but use a taxi for the final part of the trip. There are unlikely to be taxis waiting at West Jesmond or Jesmond stations, so you would need to have a mini-cab firm number and call on arrival, or you could take the Metro instead to the Central Station where there is a taxi rank. I don't think a taxi from there to Jesmond should cost more than £10. That option would probably take the longest though - about 30 minutes to the Central, say 10 minutes to wait for a taxi and another 10 to reach the B&B.
agree with toonsarah but at the West Jesmond station just ring blue line taxi,s 0n 01912626666, they are always parked up close by, so should not wait long
