Galleries and Museums

While world-class cultural attractions like BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art hold exhibitions from leading contemporary artists such as Damien Hirst and Yoko Ono, we’ve a wealth of smaller commercial and public galleries welcoming well-known and emerging contemporary artists to the area and displaying sought-after classical pieces from the greats.

The Laing Art Gallery is always worth a visit for its permanent collection which includes John Martin's breathtaking ‘The Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah’ and William Holman Hunt's poignant painting of ‘Isabella and the Pot of Basil’, whilst The Biscuit Factory, the UK’s biggest commercial gallery, is the perfect place to start or expand your collection.

History is brought to life at Beamish Museum where visitors can step back in time and see what life was like in the North East during the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods follow that with a visit to  Segedunum where you can travel even further back in time to get a taste of life as a Roman!

The Victoria Tunnel runs beneath the city from the Town Moor down to the Tyne. The tunnel is open all year round to the public for guided tours which include fantastic sound and visual effects.
