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.

How to get here

South Shields market is within easy reach of the South Shields Ferry terminal linking to North Shields and the Metro station is nearby.

With good road access and convenient parking for motorists, the market is a great attraction for visitors and local shoppers.

The A1 (M), A19 and other major trunk roads lead into South Tyneside where they link up with a modern network of dual carriageways that give access to all areas.
