The main bridge used when travelling between gateshead and newcastle. Used by vehicles swell as pedestrians. Being from newcastle. When i see this i know I'm home. It could do with a lick of pain. The odd rusty spots stand out

It is a beautiful symbol of the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I have taken hundreds of pictures there. It is a beautiful bridge where you can have a beautiful view of Tyne, specially on the sunset. There are a lot of good pubs and restaurants nearby. It is a fabulous place.

A beautiful piece of architecture and a must see if visiting Newcastle. Can be walked over or under and is such an iconic feature of central Newcastle.

Imposing & iconic, deservedly Newcastles' symbol of recognition. Views of the river and city. Running across the bridge with 50,000 people is an experience which is over all too quickly.

This is an Icon. A single span metal arch spanning the River Tyne. If visiting Newcastle this cannot be missed and is almost as nice as Sydney Harbour Bridge

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
