Business overview

Welcome to Shields Ferry

The Shields Ferry operates a daily passenger service across the river Tyne which connects the local communities of North and South Shields.

With its regular 30 minute frequency and 7 minute river crossing time, the ferry is a quick and easy way to travel, whether you’re commuting to work, visiting friends or just out shopping for the day. Local buses also serve the ferry landings either side of the river, providing an easy connection for onward travel. Metro stations are also located nearby which can take you into the heart of the city centres.

River trips:

Trips along the river Tyne also run during the months of June-October. There are many different types of trip to choose from with something for the whole family to enjoy.

Private hire:

Private events can also be held on board the ferry for parties, fundraising (or other money-making initiatives), corporate hospitality, birthdays, weddings... or for any other special occasion.
