I live on Tyneside and you cannot miss the Tyne Bridge, not only a local and international landmark, but one of my places to visit as a 'kid'. The towers at the north end had lifts (elevators...for our USA friends) down to the Quay-side market....cost 1p (old money). The bridge will always be the symbol of our great city.

This is one of the great bridges of the world. It looks superb seen from a distance. It looks unbelievable from below soaring over the Victorian buildings of the Quayside and it is exhilarating to walk along, especially at dawn or dusk.

If you claim to know the toon at all then this iconic landmark cannot be far from the front of your mind. From the deck there are spectacular views over the toon and river. From below looking up the engineering remains impressive. Well worth a visit.

People have been crossing this bridge from the South to Newcastle City since the 1920's. Imposing bridge, with amazing engineering. Fantastic views up & down the Tyne & over Newcastle & Gateshead.

This is a great way to take photographs of this vibrant city, day or night and not far from the Quayside. You also great view of the Sage on the Gateshead side of the river, the most amazing looking building. This is an iconic bridge of the area, like the Forth Road Bridge is to Scotland.

Built in 1928 and opened by the old King the world famous Tyne Bridge (yes the same as on Brown Ale bottle labels) is an icon of the North East. There is a lift in one of the stone towers takes you down to the Quayside. Not many people know this but the towers were built on cotton wool! The... More

The River Tyne is a beautiful spot, with views across the bridges and the rest of the city. Go to the Gateshead bank for a stunning view of Newcastle' architecture.

I live in Gateshead and see the bridge several times a week and it always makes me smile it seems to represent the north east. If visiting Gateshead/Newcastle I would suggest walking over the bridge, stopping for a drink at central bar on the Gateshead side and walking back across the high level. The HL Bridge isn't as nice as... More

You can't really miss this bridge it dominates the landscape and is a must see and a great photo opportunity. You can't visit Newcastle or Gateshead without photographing this iconic landmark.
