The ALAMA Spring Conference Venue
Crowne Plaza Newcastle - Stephenson Quarter
Our venue for the ALAMA Spring 2017 Conference will be the The Crowne Plaza Newcastle which is located in Stephenson Quarter and is one of the newest and most stylish hotels in the city. It’s situated behind Newcastle Central Station, in fact Stephenson Quarter is the home of the world’s first passenger train. In addition to sitting by the Station, the hotel also has great public transport links, it’s close to the Metro line and main taxi rank and is only 15 minutes drive from Newcastle Airport.
As well as the usual hotel bar there is an excellent Gin Bar, a great way to unwind and socialise with a cocktail or two! Or perhaps you would prefer to make use of the Mineral House Gymnasium, with a steam room, spa and indoor pool. The hotel also offers complimentary wifi and a 24 hour business centre. Guests can use the Stephenson Quarters public car park adjacent to the hotel, charges will apply.
The hotel is in a great position with a lot of the city’s attractions within walking distance, including: Metro Radio Arena; Centre for Life; Lane 7; Theatre Royal; Tyneside Cinema and more.
On Thursday evening we will venture out for dinner, a few minutes across the river, at the highly acclaimed Six Restaurant which sits on the top of the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, with fabulous panoramic views over the river and bridges.
If you would like to join us for dinner, please do book early as we are taking over the whole restaurant and we are limited to how many people we can sit.
