The Tyne bridge is Iconic, but viewed form underneath is really better. The Gulls do make a mess but watching them nest in the most unlikely places is facinating

A great walk/drive over the bridge. Even better is when they have event like signs put up, very pretty. The riverside looks amazing at night!

I always get a warm feeling when I see the Tyne bridge and the more I see of the world, the more I realise that Newcastle is a one of the best cities in England, or the world. You can see the tops of many of the Victorian buildings from the near edge and a great view of the port... More

This has become the symbol of Newcastle (and Gateshead). It's elegant and functional. If you've time, go up-river to Wylam and you'll see a disused railway bridge, half-a-century older, which is similar to the Tyne Bridge.

Having seen the bridge from the street going over some buildings I wanted to walk over to see how close the bridge was to the buildings hard to guess only a few feet I was hanging on to look over.Also went over on the tour bus great views of the Tyne

could not belive something like this could be build in eighteen hundreds. It's a marvel. Walk down the bridge you will notice the amount of iron that was used to build this structure

The most beautiful example of a through arch bridge in Europe, with a distinctive green colour and beautiful detailing and ornate lampposts too. Not to be missed, my 6th favourite European bridge! Underside is unfortunately a little mobbed with seagulls and pigeons, and could use a clean.

What can I say about this iconic bridge over the River Tyne, built by Dorman Long of Middlesborough at the same time as the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Along with the high level and swing bridges, the Tyne Bridge sets the special character of Newcastle Quayside. A further bonus is the colongy of kittiwakes which nest there, the largest inland nesting... More

Amazing views of the riverside! Make sure to visit on an evening to see the quayside all lit up and get views of the millennium or high level bridges.
