This is a very impressive structure in scale and the sheer number of rivets holding it together, but it's not really out of the ordinary.

Impressive Structure that can be seen all over the city. If you want a closer look, walk down the Quayside and when you reach the Millenium bridge walk across to the middle of the bridge and don't forget your camera!

Newcastle's bridges tell a fascinating story of this very interesting city. They also allowed shipping to pass through, as used to be so important. This one is a grand structure from the age when British engineering was still a world force. The similarities between this and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are obvious, but Newcastle is closer to hand!

Walked along this bridge. One of the best bridges I have stood on. Girlfriend wasn't blown away by it - Not sure what bridges she enjoys though.

this bridge symbolises everything about the north east of England, GREATNESS. luckily I work at the main large hotel in Gateshead above the swing bridge and get to see it in its splendour every day and night I work. a fabulous view from Gatesheads finest hotel lobby and hotel rooms.

Magnificent engineering and architecture combine to provide a visual treat during the day but a stunning experience at night.
