Directions To Annie's Guest House From Newcastle upon Tyne by MegaBus Coach Service
National coach service MegaBus offers a low cost coach service to/from several UK cities and even some European cities via London Victoria. The MegaBus service used to pick up and drop off outside Newcastle upon Tyne Central Station, Neville Street, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 5DH but this has now changed (from April 2013). The MegaBus Newcastle upon Tyne service now picks up and drops off on John Dobson Street in a coach layby outside the Central Library. This stop is a few minutes walk from Monument Metro station in Newcastle upon Tyne city centre. MegaBus timetable information and tickets can be obtained online here: MegaBus.
The new MegaBus coach stop on John Dobson Street is a few minutes walk to Monument Metro Station. Once you have arrived at Monument Metro Station you need to board a yellow line train to South Shields.
Detailed timetable information for this route can be found here.
Once you have arrived at South Shields Metro station our guest house is a ten minute walk from South Shields Metro station. Take the bus station exit from the Metro station (as opposed to the King Street exit), turn left and walk towards the Fowler Street shopping area of South Shields. At Fowler Street turn to your right and follow the road straight up to a set of traffic lights. These traffic lights are the start of Beach Road. Turn left at the traffic lights and walk along Beach Road, crossing straight over the small roundabout. We are door number 106 on the right hand side of the street, half way along Beach Road.
This map marking out the route from South Shields Metro station (on the top left of the image) to Annie's Guest House (on the right side of the image) might be helpful for those walking to us from the station.
Alternatively, if your bags are too numerous and/or heavy you can easily take a taxi from the rank outside the Metro station. Because it's such a short journey this will only cost you a few pounds.
Please take a note of our phone number and if you are feeling a little lost then don't hesitate to give us a call and we can give you some directions.
Finally, if you're running late (or early!) and your arrival time changes significantly then please give us a call to let us know - our check-in is 3pm until 10pm - have a safe journey.
