Tunstall is a suburb of Sunderland which is mostly a privately purchased estate. It is located to the west of Ryhope, and east of Silksworth. The area was built around a large hill, known as Tunstall Hill. Since 1966 pilgrims have erected crucifixes on the hill every Good Friday.

It is the location of The Venerable Bede Church of England Academy, which is on the former site of Ryhope Colliery and later Ryhope golf course.
