Where Can I Go?

Looking to get Active in Newcastle? You've come to the right place!

Walker Activity Dome & Library

The Walker Activity Dome is located in Walker on the east side of Newcastle, it is affectionately known as the ‘Dome’ and is just three miles, and 11 minutes drive time, away from the city centre.

The Centre has a long and positive history in the east of Newcastle and we offer a wide range of facilities and activities for all ages, abilities and members of the family.

Recently redeveloped and fully opened in February 2012, the Centre now includes 10 new 5-a-side pitches, three 7-a-side pitches and one 11-a-side pitch, as well as attractive new changing facilities.

Get more information about our Business Football League.

There has also been an upgrade to the function suite and the inclusion of an activity studio and indoor cycling studio. We also have an impressive free weights area which offers the latest resistance equipment.

Indoors or outdoors, the Centre has a variety of activities for you to get involved in. From trampolining or gymnastics, through to boxercise or netball, and even a ‘kids only’ SHOKKage gym.

What’s more, we are always looking for new ideas and ways in which facilities, and time available, might be used more effectively. Nothing is cast in stone so if you have any ideas or suggestions we’d love to hear from you.

Come along and see the impressive facilities we have to offer and be greeted with a warm, friendly welcome. Our staff are always ready to make you feel comfortable so why not come along for a tour?

Discover Newcastle’s hidden gem! We look forward to your visit.

Walker Library

The old Walker Library building closed on Saturday 6 July 2013 and reopened on Monday 22 July 2013 in a purpose built area within Walker Activity Dome.

The library offers the very best in services and is open 6 days a week. You can borrow books and have free access to information, newspapers, magazines, and computers and serve yourself at our self-service terminals. Customers can relax and meet friends over a cup of coffee or tea all available from the cafe located in the community building.
