Please note: the Tyne Tunnel is a toll tunnel. Due to the addition of a second Tyne Tunnel crossing, the directions generated by Google Maps may temporarily give directions with information about two roundabouts as you approach the Tyne Tunnel from the south. If you are travelling from the A19, keep left for Jarrow/Bede's World. At the roundabout, take the third exit, which is signposted for Bede's World and follow the road signs.
