Royal Quays Outlet Centre in Newcastle

Months ago I created a “pasalubong” list from my phone’s ‘to-do’ app. It’s actually a not-so-long list but due to time constraint, it took me a while to tick off from the list the last item – a Nike Air Max for my teenage son. Yesterday the ship was in Newcastle, UK and docked at Port of Tyne in Royal Quays, North Shields. It was not a busy day in the ship so I went ashore and did some shopping – basically to complete the list :).

Where did I went shopping in Newcastle? Not in downtown Newcastle but just walks away from the pier.

Royal QuaysAbout 15 to 20 minutes walk away from the pier is Port of Tyne’s nearest shopping center, the Royal Quays Outlet Centre. From groceries, sports accessories, clothing, home furnishings to almost everything, the Royal Quays Outlet Centre is the most convenient place for crew members from visiting ships to do some shopping. It’s not actually a very big shopping center but one can find a lot of good shops selling high street names at great bargains.

I am flying home in two weeks time and checking on my ‘pasalubong list’, finally I have everything all checked. The Royal Quays’ close proximity to the port is obviously am advantage not just to locals living nearby but to crew from visiting ships as well. No need to go to Newcastle city center just to shop, all it takes to get into shopping is simply jump off from the ship, take a leisurely walk and there you are at the Royal Quays Outlet.

Enjoy shopping!
