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

There are now several bridges over the Tyne but this one stands out as the most known Landmark in Tyneside.

It is a magnificent structure, well engineered and crosses the Tyne from Newcastle to Gateshead.... More

It used to be the number one bridge in the area and there are a few of them but I think now the millennium bridge looks more modern but the tyne will always be the symbol of the north east

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.
