South Shields is a coastal town in north east England at the mouth of the River Tyne. As well as being the oldest and largest town in South Tyneside, South Shields is also one of the region's most popular seaside resorts. For book lovers, this is Catherine Cookson Country, where the famous author was born and brought up.

South Shields has a few gay specific guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodations for the gay and lesbian traveler to choose from. There are also several gay friendly hotels, guesthouses and bed and breakfasts offering rates and amenities ranging from budget to deluxe. There’s a good choice of restaurants, cafés, traditional pubs (now smoke free) and clubs too.

South Shields has plenty to offer the gay and lesbian traveler. For starters, there’s the reconstructed Roman Fort at Arbeia, which forms part of the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site. The town's museum & art gallery, contains a permanent exhibition dedicated to the life and times of Catherine Cookson. For entertainment, there’s the Customs House theatre and arts venue.

The South Shields seafront has a traditional promenade, parks, fairground and amusement arcades, skate complex, quasar laser, miniature steam railway, boating lake and live entertainment. Out of town, the coastal scenery, beaches and dunes at Littlehaven, Sandhaven and Marsden Bay are ideal for those who enjoy walking and hiking and there’s extensive network of cycle paths and trails.

South Shields plays host to an annual free summer festival and each autumn the town is the seaside finish to the world-famous Great North Run.
