The bridge was opened in 1928 and is very similar to the Sydney Harbour Bridge which was completed three years after the Tyne Bridge. It's an iconic symbol of Newcastle and is well known as thousands of runners stream over it during the Great North Run. The bridge was opened by King George the V and at that time was... More

Contrast with the Millennium bridge. Indicative of the changes that have been made to the river over the years

The Tyne Bridge really is a 'must see' for visitors to the city. One gets a wonderful view of it and the other bridges across the River Tyne when approaching Central station on a train coming in from the south. From town, one can take a walk down to the quayside and walk under this green painted landmark and enjoy... More

Make time to visit this bridge the views are out of this world weather your looking up or down the tyne river. Make time to look along the newcastle key side at everything that's going on. time just seems to stand still here.

Great views up and down the Tyne from this engineering masterpiece. Look down over to the quayside below and get your bearings of where to go, It`s unbelievable walking across something as iconic which you see on tv about anything connected with this lovely city.

You feel quite special when you walk onto the Tyne Bridge, Yes it is busy with both cars, buses and other pedestrians. but if you walk over it slowly and take in the views both ways this gives you some great views and you then realise how hilly the city can be. A DEFINATE MUST DO when in the City.

Every spring - home to the only city-dwelling colony of kittiwakes in the world. If sightseeing, from Newcastle cross the Tyne Bridge, take a right to the Hilton where you can enjoy coffee (or something stronger) with beautiful views of the Newcastle quayside. On leaving, head to the High Level Bridge for your walk back.

My five-star rating is an emotional one - whenever I return to native town from travels anywhere the sight of the Tyne Bridge in the fabulous setting of the quayside always lifts my spirits. Theories that it was the model for the Sidney Harbour Bridge are incorrect. They were designed by the same architects and built by the same engineering... More

If you go at night, there are annoyingly bright lights all along the bridge - they strip the character away. It wouldn't hurt to give the pavement a bit of a scrub too. Still nice for us locals - you know you're home when you see the bridge !
