Beautiful in the day and illuminating at night . I have stayed in the Malmaison on numerous occasions and have always had a room with a view of this magnificent bridge . Love all the different colour variations and its brilliant for taking pictures from . A must visit if visiting Newcastle

Lovely walk across the bridge over the Tyne, with lovely views looking across to Newcastle, and up river to the Port of Tyne and the famous Road, Rail and Swing Bridge.

Go at 1-00 pm to watch the bridge open and "Wink it's eye" it gives easy access from Newcastle's vibrant Quayside to The Sage and the Baltic art gallery on the Gateshead side of the Tyne

Not bad as bridges go. Quite interesting when it opens. The best bit is the general quay area where it is and the market that the had when we went on a Sunday.
