It's a tough choice as Newcastle has so many nice bridges, but the Tyne Bridge is the most iconic, and the little neighbourhoods and alley ways below the bridge itself on the Quayside is splendid!

Beautiful iconic structure that,by foot,road or train welcomes you into Newcastle.Would love to see the stone structures at either end open up someday as a museum or even a restaurant.I always know I'm home when I cross this bridge.Love it.

This landmark of Geordie Land could be viewed from our Hotel (the Hilton Gateshead). It links Gateshead and Newcastle and gives stunning views up and down the river. The only problem I had was trying to cross the road!!

Newcastle is blessed with a number of iconic bridges, but this precursor lookalike to the Sydney Harbour bridge has to be the best and demonstrates our heritage off beautifully.

The Tyne Bridge is just like the Sydney harbour bridge just a lot closer for us northerners - always know I'm home when I see the Tyne bridge - great connection between Newcastle and a revitalised Gateshead ( it's about time)
