The Shields Ferry, South Shields Landing Stage
The Shields Ferry operates across the River Tyne, between North and South Shields.

There have been ferries across the Tyne since the 14th century; this is the only service that remains. It carries in excess of 400000 passengers each year on the approximately half-mile crossing of the Tyne. The service is operated by Nexus (The Tyne and Wear Passenger Transport Executive) and is part of the Tyne and Wear Metro System. It was known as The Market Place Ferry until the takeover by the PTE in 1972.

There are two vessels that operate the service. This one, "The Pride of the Tyne" was launched in 1993; the other ferry is "The Spirit of the Tyne" (launched 2007).
