Very good
Like much of this corner of England, including Newcastle, there is plenty of wonderful Georgian and Victorian architecture. The people are friendly, and every turning presents a surprise. Even the simple ferry joining South Shields to North Shields was a simple pleasure.

South Shields has one of the best beaches in the UK. You must try the famous minchellas ice cream parlour and colemans fish and chip restaurant. Get the metro to Newcastle if you want a great night out.

South Shields town is being up graded so a lot of shops are closed but still have enough open and the beaches are great with very good long walks.
