It´s a great view of the river, with a great walk on foot to the other side of the river. I went ther at night and during the day, and both times were great!

It's not particularly unique, but it's an impressive bridge nevertheless. It's become almost as much a part of the Tyneside skyline as the Tyne Bridge itself (although perhaps not so easily recognised!) It is, however,a very practical way for pedestrians and cyclists to cross that part of the river.

This attraction is well worth a visit. The structure fills the skyline over the river Tyne. Stand on the bridge and see the changes of colour. A wonerfull experience.

This bridge is so beautiful to look at. So simply designed and so gracefull. It's just beautiful. At night with all the coloured light it is transformed into another work of art.

I've never reviewed a bridge before, but I figured "Why not?" after all people review other architectural structures. In my time I've walked across the Millennium Bridge, I've jogged across it, ran across it, I'm pretty sure I've skipped across it (don't judge, there's bars down that way), and on each occasion the bridge has served its main function in...

Must see visit if your in the north east and great view point for taking snaps of the tyne bridge in all its glory. Try time it for when the bridge has its scheduled opening, which you can find on its website
