Shiney Row is a suburb in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne and Wear. Shiney Row enjoys good travel links with the rest of Sunderland. One of the City of Sunderland College's main centres is located in Shiney Row.

The village is also located at the south eastern end of the Washington Highway (A182) - a dual carriageway that links the village with Washington and the A194. The A182 carries on as a road as far as Seaham on the East Durham Coast and links several ex-mining comunities along its length.

The village has a few facilities, notably the recently refurbished library and a newly extended doctors' surgery.

It's main primary school is Shiney Row Primary School which feeds into Houghton Kepier School. It is however close to Our Lady Queen of Peace Primary school which feeds into the St Roberts RC School.
