You can find us in the heart of North Shields Cultural Quarter.


We are located on the corner of Howard Street and Saville Street, right in the heart of North Shields Cultural Quarter. Our postcode is NE30 1SE.

Howard Street is pedestrianised and can only be accessed for drop offs for taxis or coaches.

There is a car park to the back of the building on Norfolk Street, which is free for two hours, after 5.30pm and all weekend.

Metro & Ferry
We are a five minute walk from North Shields Metro Station and Transport Hub and a ten minute walk from North Shields ferry landing.

We are dog friendly too (apart from the shows in The 1856)
