No visit to Newcastle is complete without taking a photo of the Tyne Bridge which is probably the most iconic of all 7 bridges across the Tyne. It is a through arch bridge linking Newcastle and Gateshead and looks superb illuminated at night.

Looking a bit dirty but an iconic sight none the less. Rugby World Cup advertising spoils her. A sight every Geordie knows.

The bridge the only bridge in Newcastle. Well it's not really but it literally commands respect from the other bridges.

The Tyne Bridge is an engineering monument. It's when you get to walk underneath the bridge that you notice how the sea gulls have taken over. Every where's covered in bird droppings, bit of a health hazard. The base of the bridge, the pavement and windows of the nearest buildings. The council should do a cull of the sea gulls... More

Really impressive. Didn't realise it was only built in the 1920s. It looks as though it has been there for a couple of hundred years as it is so ornate and well maintained. But watch out for the seagulls
