Our unique service for visitors from afar
Visiting by air Our   nearest   airports   are   Newcastle   upon   Tyne   and   Durham   Tees   Valley.   We   are   midway between   them,   though   Newcastle   is   perhaps   easier   to   arrange   flights   to   and   from   due   to   their larger   number   of   air-operators.   There   are   several   low   cost   flights   from   the   likes   of   Easyjet   to help you. We   will   happily   collect   you   from   your   flight   an   take   you   to   the   shop,   then   back   to   the   airport   or perhaps   into   Newcastle   or   the   Metrocentre   Gateshead   where   you   can   enjoy   a   relaxing   meal and browse around the shops there. We   will   be   able   to   collect   up   to   3   people   at   any   single   time,   so   that’s   a   good   opportunity   for   both the   mother   of   the   bride   and   groom   plus   the   daughter   to   accompany   to   choose   something together. This   is   a   no   cost   service,   though   the   driver   would   welcome   a   small   discretionary   tip   for   his   use of time and fuel.
Visiting by sea We do occasionally collect visitors from the North Shields Ferry, including a baroness on the last UK sailing of the old QE2 before it went into retirement. We   will   happily   collect   you   from   the   port   and   take   you   to   the   shop,   then   back   to   the   port   or perhaps   into   Newcastle   or   the   Metrocentre   Gateshead   where   you   can   enjoy   a   relaxing   meal   and browse   around   the   shops   there.   If   you   have   to   book   an   overnight   stay   we   will   drop   you   at   your hotel. We   will   be   able   to   collect   up   to   3   people   at   any   single   time,   so   that’s   a   good   opportunity   for   both the mother of the bride and groom plus the daughter to accompany to choose something together. This   is   a   no   cost   service,   though   the   driver   would   welcome   a   small   tip   for   his   use   of   time   and   fuel. Completely discretionary of course.
Visiting by rail Our   nearest   mainline   railway   station   is   Durham   and   the   nearest   branch   line   for   convenience   is   at Seaham. This is best for us but Durham is no problem either. We   will   happily   collect   you   at   the   station   and   take   you   to   the   shop,   then   back   to   the   station   or perhaps   into   Durham   City   Centre   where   you   can   enjoy   a   relaxing   meal   and   browse   around   the shops there. The Cathedral was voted the UK’s most popular Cathedral in a number of polls. We   will   be   able   to   collect   up   to   3   people   at   any   single   time,   so   that’s   a   good   opportunity   for   both   the mother of the bride and groom plus the daughter to accompany to choose something together. This   is   a   no   cost   service,   though   the   driver   would   welcome   a   small   tip   for   his   use   of   time   and   fuel. Completely discretionary of course.
Visiting by car The map for our shop is on the Contact Page We   are   only   a   half   mile   from   the A19   dual   carriageway   between   Peterlee   and   Seaham   and   the   shop is at the bottom of the village green directly across from the bus shelter. The   road   (Sunderland   Road)   is   no   entry   from   Seaside   Lane   and   it’s   signed   as   access   only   from   the other end which is what you’ll be doing, ie accessing it. If you are close by and need directing in then just call and we’ll guide you from wherever we are. NB.   It   has   happened   more   than   once   that   someone   driving   to   us   has   input   Easington   into   her   satnav and   found   herself   at   a   place   of   the   same   name   down   on   the   coast   near   Whitby.   About   60   miles away.
