Catch the bus 21 or 22 (heading Gateshead) until the stop ''Durham road - Harlow Green Infants'' who drop you just in front of a petrol station.
 
You can as well catch the 1 or the 2 and get off at Allerdene(ask maybe to be the closer than Durham road)and then get up the bridge which is Durham road, and where you will see the petrol station.
 
It could seems not a lot of people, but just even ask for the next service at 5miles on the road toward the A1, there is a lots of cars who down in the south, and so good and easy to get a long lift. Good luck guys!
 
  
If you are going very far South, (London, etc) you should consider going to Carlisle and hitching down the M6. The M6 is usually busier than the A1/A1(M), and you are more likely to be left at Service stations, rather than roundabouts and junctions.

Newcastle Upon Tyne is a city in the North East of England. The main access roads to the city are the A69 and the A1(M).

Heading West (Carlisle, M6, A74(M))

Take the 39 or 40 bus to Leamington Road Ends (Exit junction from A69 near the start. Walk down to the other side of the junction and onto the A69. The filter lane is very long and is never busy. The traffic on the A69 is usually not going too fast; this is an excellent spot for cars to pull over. Consider waiting for a ride all the way to Carlisle, as it can occasionally be complicated hitching on the A69 Itself.

South toward Leeds, Manchester, London... A1(M)

Catch the bus 21 or 22 (heading Gateshead) until the stop Durham road - Harlow Green Infants which is just in front of a petrol station. You can as well catch the 1 or the 2 and get off at Allerdene (ask maybe to be the closer than Durham road) and then get up the bridge which is Durham road, and where you will see the petrol station. It could seem like there are not a lot of people, but just ask for the next services 5 miles down the road toward the A1, there are a lot of cars who go down to the south, and so it's easy to get a long lift. Good luck guys!

If you are going very far South (London etc.) you should consider going to Carlisle and hitching down the M6. The M6 is usually busier than the A1/A1(M), and you are more likely to be left at Service stations, rather than roundabouts and junctions.
