Enjoyed our walk across the bridge, watching it lift up. As it was a lovely summer's night it was lovely just watching the colours change and the reflections on the water.

lucky enough to see it 'open' up today at 12.00. Very slick/clean structure, good views when you walk across it.

Fantastic watching the bridge tilt. Its tilted for the tourists but also to allow tall ships to pass under it. Beautiful spectacle at night when its all lit up.

We have always wanted to see this iconic bridge and it did not disappoint - it opens at 12pm every day and was well worth seeing.

The bridge changes at night and has a lovely light changing display. If your lucky you may see it open. Many have tried to replicate it but in my opinion no one has achieved it.

As others have said, great to watch at night, especially as the colours cycle through A stunning piece of construction The only issue which I would warn anyone on a parking meter about, it takes 20 ish minutes to go through the closed to open to closed cycle. Plan your visit over it and keep an eye on the wardens... More

A beautiful piece of engineering. It was really interesting watching it open. The colours after dark were very impressive.

A great place to visit, walk across the bridge was easy to negotiate, a complement to the old Newcastle bridge.
