About South Shields Market
South Shields market is held in a traditional square with the Eighteenth century old town hall at its heart. The historic church of St Hilda stands on the South side of the marketplace and there has been a church on the site since 647 A.D.
The marketplace is dominated by the elegant 'pepper pot' old Town Hall, which stands at its centre, offering shelter and a handy resting place.
One of the finest open air markets in the North East, it has been recently modernised to include a new paved area and a tree lined border.
The marketplace makes an important contribution to the success of the lively pedestrianised town centre with a range of high street stores together with some excellent pubs and restaurants.
