    River Trip

    by sandysmith Updated Sep 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Soth Shields Ferry Landing, departing at 1pm on Sundays a 3 hou river trip can be made on the Tyne. The accompanying guide provides an in-depth commentary into the life of the river's past and new developments such as those we saw at the quayside. We watched this river boat, the South Shields ferry "The Pride of the Tyne", as we stood on the Millenium Bridge where its trip ended and it turned round to go back.

    With it's location on the coast, Newcastle has convenient ferries running across to some European cities, notably Amsterdam.

    The major routes are:
    Gothenburg, Kristiansand, Amsterdam, Bergen, Haugesund & Stavanger.

    There are always ads for cheap Scandinavian cruises in the local newspapers, most for under a hundred pounds.

    The Royal Quays is also a great place for Outlet shopping right at the harbour.
