How to reach us

Trains on the Tyne and Wear Metro system call at Regent Centre Station, which is approximately a quarter of a mile from the Foundation. When coming out of the Metro Station, turn right, walking past the bus stops. Head towards the main road leading to Gosforth High Street. Continue walking down the main road until you reach the traffic lights on the corner of Salters Road, next to The Gosforth Hotel pub. You will see Philanthropy House in front of you beside the public car park.
