As an alternative to walking, regular bus services run throughout the day and evening to and from the college, board at the bottom of our street at the Town Hall for a five minute journey to the main college site entrance using bus numbers 30 or 20.
Those more familiar with the South Tyneside College campus may instead choose the 10 or 11 bus routes that travel along Beach Road itself and depart the bus on Horsley Hill Road at the Grosvenor Road junction. This gives easy access to the buildings at the back of the complex including The Martec aka 1861 Club and Dr Winterbottom Hall accommodation at South Tyneside College.
(Route numbers and routes correct at the time of writing, February 2016). Timetable information for the #30 service is shown below. If you are staying with us South Shields Town Hall is where you will board the bus and Westoe is the area where you will disembark. A link to download a high-quality copy of this bus timetable is below the preview.
Although the timetable is from 2011 it is still valid/unchanged (Autumn 2017).

Driving instead of walking? Car parking is unrestricted and unmetered at the front of our South Tyneside bed and breakfast and driving to South Tyneside College using the same walking route shown above (via South Shields Town Hall and Westoe Road) takes just five minutes.
