From the A1
Leave at the junction with the A184, signposted Gateshead and City. Take the lane signposted Gateshead by the electronic notice board. Take the 3rd exit at the roundabout onto the dual carriageway and follow signs for Gateshead. Continue along the dual carriageway and head straight over the next roundabout and set of lights until you come to a junction and are forced to turn left onto the Tyne Bridge. Cross the bridge and leave at the first exit left just after the bridge. At the roundabout, do a full circle and leave the roundabout as though you were going back onto the Tyne Bridge. When you leave the roundabout take the exit to your left, where you see a blue All Saint's sign. Follow the road (Broad Chare), which bears sharply to the right, after which Live Theatre is a little further down on your right.

There is a car park in the new Trinity Gardens complex 50 metres up the road from the theatre, which can be accessed from City Road and Trinity Gardens. This is a secure 24 hour car park and costs 70p per hour and 25p per hour after 6pm. There is limited on street parking on Broad Chare and additional car parks nearby.
