  • When it first opened this was a very vibrant shopping outlet but now not so good. Quite a few good shops have left and there are many empty units. Part of the original draw was a clock/sculpture calle...  more »
  • You could be anywhere in the world on a sunny day, and you have to pinch yourself as a reminder that you are in North Shields. Great atmosphere, and having a restaurant here now just adds to the fun  more »

  • Its a beautiful place for a wander. If you're of restricted mobility its flat and well paved. One lap of the marina dock, crossing the lock gates and walking to the very end at the base of the little waterfall coming from the park is about 0.8 miles. Make it a mile by walking right down on the other side of the lock past the trawler berths and back, or for those with better mobility climb the ramp or stairs and do a lap or two of the park or continue to the outlet centre. As previously mentioned rubbish in the marina dock detracts from an otherwise perfect scene although I realise it will wash in with the tide as the lock gates open. Other marinas can control it so why not Royal Quays?
  • Lovely place. Great view. I love watching ships come in and go out
  • Its a nice walk around the Marina and through the Chirton dene park, royal quays shopping outlet is close by, the visiting cruise ships dock here.
  • Lush place to visit with the kids & dog. Always clean and looked after, plus its nice to watch the boats.
  • Great place to go dog walks at the Earl of Zealand. Lovely park and waterways. New cafe to open shortly. Busy Marina.
