2015 River Tyne River Trips

Home > Tyne & Wear > Newcastle upon Tyne

Shields Ferry River Tyne

Summer river trips on the river Tyne start next month, running from June to October 2015. There are many different trips to choose from and are a unique way to view some of the historic sights along the banks of the Tyne and to see the modern new developments taking shape along the river.

The three hours river trips sail between South Shields and Newcastle upon Tyne, as far as Newcastle and Gateshead quaysides where you will get to see and sail under Gateshead‘s iconic Millennium Bridge. The two hour river trips let you take in the monumental landmarks of the surrounding local areas of North and South Shields and sail out towards the piers at the mouth of the river Tyne.

Entertainment is provided on many of the river trips with something to suit all the family from live river commentaries, sing-a-longs to fish & chip trips – all of which are regular features of their scheduled summer programme of events. A variety of children’s entertainment also runs throughout the school summer holidays.

New for 2015 there is ‘live music and entertainment’ with some great bands to suit all tastes, guaranteed to liven up your weekends!

You can read and download both the family fun on the Tyne river trips and evening River Cruises brochures here…
