The second image from a new personal project called European Ferries looking at European passenger ferry links to Europe from the UK. The Port of Tyne is one of the UK’s major seaports and was voted ‘Port of the Year’ in the 2014 National Transport Awards.
The Fifteen-and-a-half-hour crossing is made durable by several on-board bars and restaurants. I enjoyed waving to the passengers from across the bay at Groyne Lighthouse, South Shields the previous evening. The ferries return at 9am the following morning was a more subdued event.
