Newcastle is hosting three World Cup matches, on Oct 3, 9 & 10 - featuring the defending chapions New Zealand, and also the might South Africans! The city will host an official 'Fanzone' at Science Central (within earshot of St James' Park!) with large screens, food and a party atmosphere! The Tongan national team will be hosted at Northumbria University in the city, while Scotland will use the facilities at Newcastle's Royal Grammar School. Gateshead International Stadium and Gateshead College's Academy for Sport will be a base for South Africa and Samoa. So the north-east is playing a key part in this fantastic celebration of rugby - and we can't wait!
If you're visiting for the RWC 2015, why not make the most of the opportunity and extend your stay - to escape the busy city and experience the wide-open skies and peace of Northumberland amidst the rugby-fest!
The Sutheran family are all passionate about rugby. We sponsor Zach Kibirige, an exciting young winger at our local Premiership club, Newcastle Falcons, and our family 'eats and sleeps' rugby. So if you're heading out of the city, there's no better place to enjoy the rugby banter than at St Cuthbert's House! We'll almost certainly have all the games showing on our large 6ft screen in the guest lounge.
And if you're fortunate enough to have tickets to the game, then you can catch the bus to Newcastle city centre just a few steps from our door - or we'll even give you a lift to the mainline railway station, which is just 25 minutes form Newcastle city centre.
We have some spaces during the RWC period, so don't follow the crowds - get the most from your World Cup experience and experience 'England's Best B&B 2014'. Give us a call!
