south shields

Having lived in South Shields all my life and getting lots of help on the Magaluf forum, I thought I wouldn't mind helping any visitors to our little North East town. If you need any information I am here to help and assist, its not a problem. This is a great website and I have benefited hugely from it with the information I have gained from other members from other areas.

1. Re: south shields

Hi, you might be able to help me - we're booked on a DFDS mini cruise, leaving South Shields on Sunday. We can check in between 2.30pm - 4.30pm and sail at 5pm. Question is, if we dump the car at the car park at the Ferry Terminal, is there anywhere close by (or within a reasonable taxi ride) that we can have some lunch and watch the Liverpool v Man Utd game on Sky Sports, 1pm kick off? Its not really the end of the world if we can't, but thought it was worth asking!

Thanks

Im not sure my friend as I live in South Shields and the DFDS sails from North Shields over the river as far as I know, now a few things I do know is there is a Premier Inn at the Royal Keys which is about 5 minutes walk from the car park but Ive never been in and there is a bowling alley on the otherside of the road which might have a bar, North Shields town centre is only 5 minutes taxi drive away and Tynemouth is about 10/15 minutes drive. Im sorry that I dont have exact details for you as its a totally different town to mine.

Best Regards from Daryn

That would of been a sight if you watched the DFDS sail by you while having a pint in the Alum House on the wrong side!

Joking aside, Darynsax gave good info there, or just jump in a taxi into North Shields, have a good trip!

If the Alum House if that pub on the left hand side after you get off the Ferry, you might well be tempted to stay and forget the mini cruise, it's a lovely spot.

hahaha it is like lovely spot just stay in South Shields instead its a great nightlife at the weekend ,but jokes aside I must tell you a friend of mine went on the mini cruise to Amsterdam and said the price of beer on the boat is crazy now, also Amsterdam is even worse but I know that wont bother you when your away on a break you save for it and dont care how much stuff is ,well sometimes anyway LOL

I think he said it was £4 a pint on the boat and upto £8 in Amsterdam, they are gonna spoil it for themselves because people will stop going ,mind there must be cheaper bars than that.

Anyway have a nice time and tell us how it went.
