St James Metro station is a station on the Tyne and Wear Metro, in the west end of the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, England. The station is situated next to St James' Park, the stadium of Newcastle United F.C..

The station, which opened in 1982, is one of the termini of the Yellow line of the Metro system. The interior of the station is distinct, as the walls are decked out in black and white stripes (the colours of Newcastle United) and depicts Newcastle United players and managers past and present. However, when it was first opened, it was finished in the same colours as the other underground stations on the system (cream and yellow).

In 2008-9, the station was used by around 246,000 passengers.[1]
