Gentleman reading timetable

The ferry is currently operating to a reduced capacity.

To ensure the Shields Ferry is Covid-secure, and that social-distancing is possible, the number of passengers we can currently carry is reduced.

This means that you could be asked to wait until the next crossing if we have reached the limit.  

***

The ferry service operates a regular 30 minute frequency from both sides of the river.  The crossing time between North and South Shields takes about seven minutes.  A frequency guide for the ferry is below, or the full timetable is in the Downloads section at the bottom of the page.
