King Street Shopping Area South Tyneside Visitor Guide 2017

Shop-Shape

From world-famous brands to quirky independent offerings, South Tyneside’s towns and villages provide a range of retail therapy.

Global Icons

The jewel in the crown of South Tyneside’s retail offering is undoubtedly that most-British of brands — Barbour. The brand was founded in South Shields in 1894, and its headquarters remain here despite it having grown to become one of the world’s most recognisable — and successful — fashion brands. Their factory outlet in Jarrow offers both new collections and last season’s range at a discounted price – a great place to invest in some quality clothing.

Plenty of the biggest high street names have outposts in South Tyneside too — head to Waterloo Square and King Street in the centre of South Shields to explore well-known favourites including Next, Desire by Debenhams and River Island.

Local Heroes

If you’re looking for a more personal touch, South Tyneside’s towns and villages are worth exploring – packed with boutiques, delis and independent emporiums of all types.

In the beautiful village of Cleadon you’ll find Jan Watters Florist, which stocks design-led gifts and homewares in addition to their beautiful bouquets, and Marianne Fashions — your go-to for special occasions and mother-of-the-bride fashion. Foodies are well catered for too -don’t forget to stop by Happy Organic, a cafe and health store, and Bon Appetite, a cafe and deli which also stocks a range of gifts and homewares.

“South Shields’ popular monthly craft markets have a new home”

The village of Westoe meanwhile is home to Keltic Touch, a quirky and unusual gift shop, and Dress Me VIP Boutique, which stocks exclusive fashion items you won’t find on the high street, including celebrity trends and styles. At the heart of the coastal village of Whitburn you’ll find Stella’s Loft, an eclectic lifestyle boutique. Whitburn is also home to the award winning traditional Di Giorgio Butchers.

In East Boldon independent menswear store Master Debonair dress the sharpest men in the area with seemingly effortless style, while the sales at Boldon Auction Galleries and Jarrow Auction House are treasure troves of unique finds and one-off pieces.

At the edge of South Shields Market Square, the Shop @The Word is home to the area’s visitor information centre and is a great place to pick up unique gifts, cards, jewellery prints and much more.

Market

South Shields’ popular monthly craft markets have a new home and name — the Pepperpot Fayre is now held in South Shields Market Square (outside The Word) on the first Sunday of the month from May to October.

The Market Square is also home to the traditional South Shields market, which takes place as usual every Monday, Friday and Saturday. If that’s not enough, Jarrow’s Viking Centre is holding a monthly Sunday craft market over the summer, and there are special markets and fayres in the area throughout the year, including the fabulous Christmas Wonderland Fayre at Haven Point in November.

Walking Free South Tyneside Visitor Guide 2017

Walk The Walk

South Tyneside distills all of the North East’s best bits – dunes, cliffs, parks, countryside, sea views — into a dramatic and eminently walkable landscape.

Walking is pretty good, isn’t it? Propelling yourself along at a leisurely pace, relying only on your own legs and sense of self-determination and freedom. There are loads of good words for it too. Stomp. Wander. Stroll. Plod. Walking’s by far the most poetic way of getting anywhere.

And it’s not just the descriptors which are poetic: South Tyneside’s varied scenery packs in all of the greatest hits of the North East. Obviously, being on the coast, there are dunes and cliffs to wander across stretching from South Shields down to Whitburn. There’s something incredibly soul-settling about staring out to sea, and the vantage points in South Tyneside out across Marsden Bay are especially majestic. Head to Whitburn Coastal Park and Souter Lighthouse and head north towards Frenchman’s Bay for an easy stroll along the clifftops, taking in the panoramic sea views.

Walking along the promenade beside Sandhaven and Littlehaven beaches is a joy too, as are South Marine Park and North Marine Park overlooking the promenade. Away from the coast there are a number of options, such as Hebburn Riverside Park. Once a derelict, beaten-up landscape scarred by generations of heavy industry – chemical works and ship-building, primarily – the land along here has been transformed with new housing, a nature trail and riverside walk.

You want nature? South Tyneside is absolutely full of it, not least at Tilesheds Local Nature Reserve between Boldon and Cleadon. As the name suggests, it used to be a brick and tile works, but now it’s pond and marshland plus thousands of native trees and shrubs. That means it’s teeming with wildlife: you’ve got your classic pond-dwellers like frogs, toads, newts, dragonflies and water boatmen, plus breeding swans, coots and moorhens.The nearby Cotman Gardens Meadow makes for an evocative walk too. It’s a traditional meadow that’s been unploughed for generations, meaning you can get a feel for how our forebears would have frolicked among the cowslips, great burnet and yellow rattle.

West Boldon Lodge is another great place for nature-lovers to explore, with 13 hectares of open water, wet and dry meadows, grassland, woodland, coppiced willow areas and scrub woodland.

Industry has added to the drama of some of South Tyneside’s walkable scenery though, and Cleadon Hills is a case in point. The old windmill and the iconic Cleadon Water Tower dot the grassy landscape as, to steal WH Auden’s memorable phrase from the poem Night Mail, “gigantic chessmen”. The route from Well House Farm to Cleadon Windmill forms part of Bede’s Way, which was put together to allow ramblers to follow in the footsteps of seventh century pilgrims who would travel between the monastery sites of St Peter’s in Wearmouth to St Paul’s in Jarrow. You can still feel the history in the air.

Cleadon Hills Free South Tyneside Visitor Guide 2017

The Famous Five

As you’re out and about exploring all South Tyneside has to offer, don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for these five fabulous local landmarks.

Cleadon Windmill. Whether or not you buy into the ghost stories, make sure you see this 200-year-old ruined windmill as you’re exploring Cleadon Hills.

Souter Lighthouse. The first lighthouse in the world designed and built to be powered by electricity is not only a marvel of engineering – you’ll love the views from the top.

Marsden Rock. One of the most recognisable sights on this beautiful stretch of coast, this towering rock formation in Marsden Bay is home to a significant seabird colony.

The Eye. Among the most iconic of South Tyneside’s outstanding selection of public art, make sure you peer through The Eye for stunning views of the pier and the sea.

Hebburn Central. This £13 million development, which includes swimming pools, sports and dance halls, a library and cafe, has picked up national awards for its impact on the community since opening two years ago, and its architecture is truly striking.
