Sandcastles, surf and smiles is what you’d expect from any traditional seaside town and South Shields has them all in spades!
The town of South Shields is the epitome of a good old-fashioned British seaside resort; vinegar-drenched fish and chips, the bright lights of fairground rides and sandcastles on the beach. And with sunset walks, thrilling watersports, adventure golf, captivating parades and live music in the amphitheatre, there’s no shortage of traditional seaside entertainment.
The award-winning beaches and spectacular coastal scenery provide the backdrop to the seaside funfair of Ocean Beach Pleasure Park.
Whether the northern climate calls for flip flops or wellies, ice creams or hot chocolate, a trip to the seaside promises to leave rosy cheeks, smiles all around, and new places discovered.
