Tyne-Tees Steam Shipping Company



Would be travellers  to European North Sea ports such as Hamburg and Rotterdam could once have sailed direct from Newcastle upon Tyne as this preserved painted advertisement on Newcastle's quayside testifies. The timetable shows is from July 1929. Now the only ferry to Europe from the Tyne is the daily one to Amsterdam from North Shields

  1. Those were the days, steamship to London from Newcastle! Sadly Leeds is inland else I would be happy to travel south to London on a steamship now that they gave up on GNER.
