North Shields is located on the north bank of the River Tyne between Tynemouth and Newcastle. It's here you'll find Newcastle's fishing fleet when they're in port.

"It's a place that brings back memories of my life there as a child", says Jay, who also had a flat near there as a university student. "I remember the smells of the fish but, most of all, I remember that when ever I was noisy as a child, my parents would liken me to a North Sheilds fish wife!"
