What can I say.. this is the symbol of the city of Newcastle. I have driven over it numerous times over the years and I still love it.

Impressive to look at but don't get too close as it was being used as a seagull nursery with nests on every available crevice. The consequence being everything is covered in seagull poo which stinks to high heaven and if you're very unlucky they may divebomb you and give you a bit to take home.

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.
