Travelling to our venues by Metro

Take the kids for free all day, every day

Make your ‘Ways to Play’ adventure a great value day out by travelling to our venues by the Metro and/or Shields Ferry. Up to three children aged 11 and under can travel for free on the Metro and the Shields Ferry with a fare-paying adult. Metro is the convenient, fast and frequent way to get to your favourite attractions and now it’s even more affordable. Find out more.
