If you're looking for a way to get across the Tyne from Gateshead to Newcastle, you won't go wrong with the Tyne Bridge. The bridge is conveniently located across the Tyne, with entrance/exit points on dry land in both Gateshead and Newcastle. What makes this bridge extra special is the fact that not only can pedestrians use it the WALK... More

It's high, rounded, made of metal (always a plus point) and painted green. It can carry cars, buses, lorries, vans,bikes motorbikes and trains (if they're on the back of a lorry) oh and people can walk over it too. Sometimes people jump off it which isn't so nice but you can't hold that against a bridge such as this.

I remember running over the Tyne bridge when I completed the Great North Run several years ago and it was an amazing experience. Now to come back with my toddler and take pictures at the same spot is brilliant. Well worth a visit and some good photos while you are in Newcastle.

Beautifully designed bridge with great views over the river and riverside buildings like The Sage, Baltic and Guildhall. Shame about the traffic, but we just have to live with that these days.

Crossing the Tyne Bridge by car from the South, you know you're home.....if you live here. If you're visiting.....you've arrived. It's the iconic landmark of Tyneside. Even though the Tyne is crossed by many bridges, this is the one most photographed over the decades. It's a magnificent piece of engineering. Okay, that's the good bits. Traffic can be a nightmare,... More

An icon of Newcastle, well worth the walk to the Tyne to see it and the other bridges across it. A paint job would be good.

Train, road and pedestrian bridges all together. So from the Quayside you could see Air, Sea, Road, Rail and Pedestrian transport systems.

Been there along time and the engineering is renown not a lot more one can say. Rather grey/depressing like the City overall.
