Cycle or walk under the River Tyne

Discover the newly-restored Pedestrian and Cyclist Tunnels between Howdon and Jarrow. Travel back in time to the 1950s when the Tunnels first opened, creating a vital link for thousands of Tynesiders working in the shipyards and factories along the River Tyne.

Enjoy the experience of cycling or walking under the river – without getting your feet or tyres wet! And it’s free! Explore the attractions of North Tyneside, South Tyneside and beyond. Keep fit. Go green.
