The Jarrow Art Centre in the Viking Precinct hold seasonal displays, usually of a local flavour. Just on the outskirts of the town is the historic Tyne Pedestrian Tunnel, which features the longest and oldest wooden escalators in the world. Jarrow's most famous resident was the father of the English language, the Venerable Bede, his life being celebrated at Bede's World, a museum and replicated Saxon village, next to the church of St. Paul and the ruins of the originally monastery where Bede lived.


Visit Bede's world and try a pint of Jarrow Brewery's ale at the Robin Hood, where the brewery is located.
