The first recorded inhabitants of South Shields were from a Celtic tribe called the Brigantes. They founded a settlement called Caer Urfa ("The Town on the Rock") from which our Terrace takes its name.
The Romans arrived in South Shields in AD80 and built a fort to supply Hadrian's Wall. You can visit the wonderfully renovated fort around the corner from the Guest House.
