Great North Run Weekend – Accommodation in South Shields


Great North Run (GNR) weekend is fast approaching and everyone is getting excited for this year’s event. This world renowned event draws attention worldwide and showcases many of the fantastic landmarks of the North East of England.

South Shields is the finishing point of the GNR and boasts excellent views out across the Tyne River and the North Sea. This year 56,000 runners are expected to cross the finishing line in South Shields.

Accommodation in Newcastle, South Shields and all around the North East is quickly snapped up, usually well in advance of Run Day.  It can be a real challenge for Runners and their supporters to find accommodation, whilst there are plenty of Hotels, Bed & Breakfasts and Guesthouses, there is just not enough to meet demand.

Unfortunately we do not have any accommodation available for this year’s Great North Run, but if you are passionate about the event either as a Runner or a spectator you may consider booking with us for GNR 2016.

As soon as the date goes live for the 2016 Great North Run we will be accepting bookings.

Good luck to all of those taking part in this year’s event.  If you are in need of refreshment after the Run, you may want to call in to The Clifton Cafe & Coffeeshop which is located on Ocean Road, South Shields just opposite the famous Colman’s Fish & Chip shop.
