Old Low Light

The community of North Shields grew up where the river meets the sea, and for centuries the harvest of these waters has sustained the town – The Old Low Light is a visitor centre that invites you to experience this story.

Lose yourself in tales of traders, fishermen, shipbuilders and mariners as you navigate your course on a dynamic exploration of 900 years of maritime heritage.

Enjoy spectacular views over the mouth of the Tyne from the viewing platform – a ‘must do’ whatever the weather! Then give your taste buds a treat with the range of locally sourced hot and cold snacks available at the cafe.

Through a changing programme of hands-on activities, workshops, exhibitions and events you can learn about the life of the folks of Shields through the experiences of real people and the objects they used.
