The Port of Tyne is one of the UK’s major seaports and was voted ‘Port of the Year’ in the 2014 National Transport Awards.
It sits on both banks of the River Tyne, with most cargo docks in South Shields and the International Passenger Terminal in North Shields. It has operated passenger services for over one hundred years and offers a purpose-built cruise berth, capable of handling a wide range of vessels.
The region boasts areas of exquisite natural beauty and is home to a number of World Heritage Sites including Hadrian’s Wall, Durham Cathedral and Alnwick Castle. Also, in 120 AD the Romans founded Fort Arbeia in the South Shields area, it has been partially reconstructed and is well worth a visit.
