Out and About

For a little seaside resort South Shields packs a lot in, and each year it just seems to
keep geting better. Visitors and locals are spoilt for choice by the wide variety of events,
which are hosted every year by South Tyneside Council.

Throughtout the summer months you will find free musical events at the Bents Park, which
is only 5 minutes away from The Magpie's Nest. The Ampitheatre just next to the beach
also hosts entertainment to keep the whole family happy and is just a short stroll away.
Big kids and small kids ahke will enjoy the roller coaster ride at Ocean Beach Pleasure
Park.

Even closer than the parks and the beaches are the great restaurants, which South
Shields has in abundance. On Ocean Road itself visitors are treated to a delight of aromas
coming from the selection restaurants, cafes and takeaways. They cater for every taste,
traditional fish and chips. Mediterranean, Chinese. Italian and last but by far not least an
abundance of Indian Curry Houses right on our doorstep. With so much competition prices
stay cheap so it's not a drain on your wallet to indulge in this cuisine.

There's nightlife, nightlife and even more nightlife. Pubs and clubs galore - thankfully not
right on our doorstep but just 5 minutes away. So guests who want to can enjoy the
revelry until the early hours and others who enjoy a more sedate recreation will not be
disturbed by any noise from the lively town centre hostelries. The Pier (Steve and Jan's
local) is situated across the road, a pub reminiscent of old charm with great beer.

Steve and Jan like all their guests to enjoy their stay but do ask that consideration is
shown when they return to The Magpie's Nest. Please keep the noise to a minimum when
returning in the early hours. Stag parties and hen nights are catered for but it's The
Magpie's Nest policy to ask these parties for credit card details in case of accidental
damage. This precaution has never been warranted and guests have always behaved
impeccably. Jan credits this to people responding to the pleasant surroundings.
