Royal Quays is an area of North Shields, North Tyneside, England. It is on the site of former docks and contains the pre-existing North Shields International Ferry Terminal. Since 1990 the area was re-branded Royal Quays and redeveloped with housing, a shopping centre, a water park known as Wet n Wild, and other retail outlets.

Albert Edward Dock in 1917

The area is centered on the former Albert Edward Dock which is now the Royal Quays marina.

The inside of the main shopping area has been used on at least two occasions by the BBC to film scenes for children's programs.

The nearest Metro stations are Meadow Well and Percy Main.
