  About Tyneside
Originally flourishing during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th century, the region of Tyneside has all but thrown off its industrial past since the decline of manufacturing and shipbuilding - the area's major employers at one time.
Although the area's past connections with the coal and steel industries are only really evident in some of its older buildings, there are a few examples of Tyneside's heritage still operating to this day, such as the functioning shipyard in Wallsend.
A number of less state-of-the-art but no less interesting attractions are also present on Tyneside: the one-time home of the Venerable Bede - St Paul's Monastery - where the renowned monk and scholar penned much of his work is situated in Jarrow.
