After the concert or match, getting back is quite simple with Seaburn deemed a 10-15 minute walk from the stadium. For those who need the Metro, use St Peters Station. Moreover, the journey from the stadium is not far, however overcrowding on the platform could be an issue due to capacity numbers reaching sometimes 30,000 or 40,000 sometimes.
Consequently, there is a system where travel to Northbound (i.e. towards Newcastle) is at an alternate stop with St Peters used for the opposite direction, such as back into Sunderland.
Whilst in Sunderland why not check out the National Glass Centre. A fascinating museum where interactive workshops and events are held.
