nullNext Stop... North East England

 

World heritage sites, stunning coastline, dramatic castles and cathedrals, sumptuous stately homes and gardens, plus some of Europe’s most culturally exciting cities – at the Port of Tyne they’re all within easy reach.

 

The Port’s location in North Shields is just eight miles away from the bustling city centre of Newcastle, renowned for the quality of its culture and shopping and being voted UK Best City 2014 by readers of The Guardian. 

 

For culture and heritage lovers, North East England is steeped in history. The region is home to several UNESCO World Heritage sites, including Hadrian’s Roman Wall and the City of Durham, as well as Alnwick Castle, known as the ‘Windsor of the North’, but most recognised for its role as Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films as well as being featured in the popular period drama Downton Abbey.

 

But it’s not just a sense of history that makes the places so special; as an area of outstanding natural beauty, the North East is home to beautiful coastlines and gardens.

 

With a wide-range of world-famous visitor attractions only an hour’s journey from our International Passenger Terminal, the Port of Tyne, which was named as UK’s Port of the Year 2014 at the National Transport Awards, makes an ideal stop-off or starting point for any cruise itinerary.
