Its always quite special to see this bridge and has got a certain aura about it.....although not when stuck on one long traffic jam. Great architecture and it does have something special about it well worth seeing if you are a visitor.

With or without the fog, The Tyne bridge is a spectacular piece of architecture and was designed by the same bloke who created Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Just loved the look of it - superb workmanship. To think it fits right into this bustling city & people take many pictures of it - its stood the test of time.

While many reviews will state 'it's just a bridge' (they are 100% correct), it's very difficult to ignore how iconic this bridge is. The best view is potentially from the high level bridge looking down the river towards the Baltic and Sage on an evening, when all are lit.

This bridge is normally hectic traffic wise, but is an essential route in and out of the city. Iconic and well built, it is a good symbol of Newcastle and if you ever get the chance to walk across and overlook the edges, do it!

This is a wonderful construction. So high and looking so solid. The one downfall is the route to get there. Many one ways, bus lanes etc. Be careful. It's also very busy all around at all times of day, not just the rush hour..

A foot and road bridge, however, the traffic is heavy throughout the day. Not as big as you may imagine, but the most famous landmark in Newcastle, and the symbol of the great north run. Prefect for views of the other bridges and the river Tyne, and for great views of the city from the Gateshead side. Situated high above... More

Proud Geordie- I pass over the bridge most days, having been born on the Newcastle side and still work in town but now live south of the Tyne I still get the same feeling driving over it as I did as a little girl... That you're nearly home! Iconic, defining symbol of our region which proudly displayed the largest Olympic... More
