As stated it symbolises the town and its history and this is the feelings that geordies have for the toon. And the Tyne Bridge, not to forget the other bridges as well. Whether your from Gateshead or Newcastle matters little.

The whole area is so amazing to me and the atmosphere is wonderful. The people are so friendly it feels like you've known them all your life. There are quite a lot of buildings to see and restaurants and pubs to visit, it's like we've never been away when we come back here. Love it.

Looks familiar, just like the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Typical Southerner, I know more about Newcastle NSW than I do about Newcastle, Tyne & Wear. Now I'm back in the UK it's time I visited the Northeast. Newcastle was great, and I was surprised to find a breeding colony of kittiwakes under the bridge.

I have visited Newcastle many times but seeing the Tyne Bridge is always special. It's high above the river and gives great views of the other bridges but it's the Tyne Bridge that is really the landmark. Good views from the Quayside area.

I always find it most thrilling crossing the River Tyne when arriving in Newcastle-upon-Tyne,and the Tyne Bridge is my favourite crossing point which I consider is a superb approach to Newcastle's city centre. Could I suggest perhaps,that you take a bus over the Tyne Bridge and sit in the front seats upstairs in order to admire the grand view which... More

Forget Sydney - you don't have to go there for a bridge ;-) Landmark structure and icon of Newcastle. A must visit if you are in Toon.

You always know your home when you see the bridge, great views up the river and of the quayside. Stand and admire the fantastic NE, you won't be disappointed!'!!

With a road going south. Sometimes the sun shines while you're driving over it. What more is there to like?
