Overall Guide : I lived in South Shields for many years during the early eighties, I was a student at the marine college there until I graduated in july 1987. I think it is an affordable place to live in, a lot of... more entertainments with excellent trasportation system. As far as I am concerned South Shields is a safe place and has a lot to show.
Not to be missed the sea port , town centre , night life
