Completed in 1842, the Victoria tunnels make up a huge part of Newcastle’s history. Running from the Town Moor down to the River Tyne, the tunnels were originally formed to transport coal. These were then converted in 1939 into air raid shelters to protect many citizens throughout World War 2. These days, there is 700m of preserved tunnel which has regular tours to walk you through the history of Newcastle.

The iconic arch bridge over the River Tyne has become the most celebrated of the seven bridges crossing the River Tyne. Opened in 1928, the bridge combines Newcastle’s modern architecture with great history.
