Gala Bingo in Gateshead is located at the Metro Centre as part of the Metro Retail Park. This huge retail and leisure complex is in fact the largest in the UK and Gala fits right in in that respect as the club is huge too. It is easily accessible via the A1 and there is of course ample parking due to the size of the overall complex – which incidentally is over 4.3million square feet! With parking for over 15,000 cars you are sure to find a space.

For those who choose to take public transport then your best stop is the Derwenthaugh Bridge Approach on Scotswood View where you will be able to take bus numbers 6, 7, 84, 941, Ten 10, Red Kite 47 and x66. However for those who choose to drive why not take an indulgent stop off at the Krispy Kreme drive thru on the way home?

The venue itself is huge inside and out and has all the extravagance you would expect from such as location. The bars and diner on-site are always on hand to keep you refreshed and provide good quality food and drinks. There is also a large gaming zone where you will find an array of arcade games and slots to keep you busy between games. There is of course a cash machine on site and full disabled access and facilities including a hearing loop.

If you do hit the jackpot then you couldn’t be better placed with over 370 various shops and eateries to spend your winnings at.
