The cruise terminal is in North Shields the William Fox is in South Shields. However a short taxi drive via the tyne tunnel the terminal is very close to the tunnel. The hotel is comfy and the staff friendly. Did you know the tv crime series "Vera" is filmed in this area and you will recognise scenes from the series when leaving the cruise terminal, so keep an eye out. Have a nice cruise.
