North Shields Fish Quay to Tynemouth Market Weekend Walk Idea
North East Family Fun
by
2w ago
  This is such a lovey weekend walk idea to try as a couple, with friends or kids. It's dog friendly too. We park at Low Lights Car Park on North Shields Fish Quay which is free and walk up to the market then back again. It's around 3k in total so not a big walk but it is up hill on the way there (although there are seats and I've managed to push a buggy up here a few times).  Pushchair / mobility scooter friendly (there is a steady incline)  3km (circular) in length with beautiful views  Toilets at the start, end and mid-way  Plenty of seating along the route  ..read more

There is a steeper hill down to the actual harbour area but it's easy to miss this part out and there are plenty of other cafes along the main prom where you can visit as an alternative. You can watch a video walk-through of ..read more
