While many reviews will state 'it's just a bridge' (they are 100% correct), it's very difficult to ignore how iconic this bridge is. The best view is potentially from the high level bridge looking down the river towards the Baltic and Sage on an evening, when all are lit.

This bridge is normally hectic traffic wise, but is an essential route in and out of the city. Iconic and well built, it is a good symbol of Newcastle and if you ever get the chance to walk across and overlook the edges, do it!

This is a wonderful construction. So high and looking so solid. The one downfall is the route to get there. Many one ways, bus lanes etc. Be careful. It's also very busy all around at all times of day, not just the rush hour..

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

Proud Geordie- I pass over the bridge most days, having been born on the Newcastle side and still work in town but now live south of the Tyne I still get the same feeling driving over it as I did as a little girl... That you're nearly home! Iconic, defining symbol of our region which proudly displayed the largest Olympic... More

There are now several bridges over the Tyne but this one stands out as the most known Landmark in Tyneside. Someone now living in the South of England, on my return visits to the North the sight of this bridge tells me I am home! 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

My wife is from Newcastle and always feel she has arrived home when crossing the bridge. its fame is spreading with the great north run as the runners cross the bridge each year.
