As far as I am aware you cannot cross it on a train as another reviewer has implied. Very impressive after dark with the... More

One of my favourite journeys, either in a car or on the train, is going across the Tyne Bridge - absolutely magnificent, and welcoming you to the city.

Yes that's correct, but mainly because its on my route to work, yes the tunnel could be faster. But going over the Tyne Bridge everyday is magically its as if you see it for the first time everyday it makes me a little sad to be going south bound and then a little happy to be going North Bound (home...

I think this is the nicest bridge in Newcastle. We didnt realise how high up it was until we were walking over it. The millenium bridge seems small compared to this.

It's certainly a must to walk over this has two advantages, great views of the mighty Tyne river and you can easily get to other attractions such as the sage music venue and the flour mill art galleries.
