We had been to the Angel of the North, and driven on into Gateshead to do some shopping.

Really impressed by the Tyne bridge. Really wanted to see this while I was in Newcastle so I'm glad I got to see it. Stands tall above the Quayside so you get a good view while going across it.

All of the bridges across the Tyne are amazing but think of Newcastle and the Tyne bridge should spring to mind. Gateway to the quayside and the millennium bridge.

Brilliant bit of engineering. Almost as good as Brunel's suspension Bridge. Drove across it four times
