Timetable

Gentleman reading timetable

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.

As a result of reduced demand and passenger numbers because of local and national restrictions, the Shields Ferry will not run after 18:30 from Monday 16 November until further notice.
