This bridge connects Newcastle to Gateshead and Sunderland. I would say if you're in Newcastle then you're bound to visit this place. The bridge looks great from the riverside and if you want the complete view of the bridge, go to the millennium bridge and take nice pictures. I used to cross this bridge daily, when you're crossing the Tyne... More

Probably Newcastles most recognised landmark, it would be a shame to come here and not stroll across the bridge. Takes a leisurley 20 minutes or so to walk across and back. Goods views of the town and its river. Wide pavements mean it is perfectly safe and no traffic hassle. Well worth the walk

Go the low swing bridge to get the great views. Have a lovely stroll around the area. Coming at night is great as you get great reflections off the water

Couldn't visit Newcastle without walking over the bridge. a testament to the city itself and all those workers who toiled to build this iconic feature. Still has some of the victorian gas lamps and also has a section for the obligatory leaving of padlocks, should you choose to do so

This bridge in my opinion means a lot to myself, i was born in the north east of England and being in the building industry myself i can appreciate what the men involved in the construction of this bridge had to overcome.The bridge which is a through arch bridge design and what I've seen on old films was a fantastic...

We drove across the bridge, may be thats why it just seemed like an average bridge- may be if walked across the bridge we would have noticed the difference! next we visit will try walking along it.

This is an icon and has to be seen, admired, enjoyed for its architectural beauty and crossed. And the kittywakes have enjoyed making it home too.

There are bridges and there are synonymous bridges. The Tyne Bridge is unmistakeably, Newcastle. What a pleasure to see and walk along an engineering marvel that's not just a bridge but world-wide recognised icon.

This bridge will take you from Gateshead to Newcastle and back again. It is quite attractive to look at if you like engineering and that sort of thing
