|List of stations|
St. James is an underground terminus station on the Tyne and Wear Metro, serving the city of Newcastle upon Tyne. The station opened in November 1982, following Metro's extension from Tynemouth to St. James.
An estimated 270,000 passenger journeys were made from the station during 2017–18.
The interior of the station is distinct, as the walls are coloured with black and white stripes (the colours of Newcastle United), and depict players and managers from the past and present. However, when the station was first opened, it was finished in the same colours as the other underground stations on the system (cream and cadmium yellow).
