A lovely bridge, in day and night. The bridge at night is a colourful rainbow. It complements all the other bridges. Amazing technology, well worth visiting

Fabulous design and views from it. We walked over it several times. It would have been good to see a ship come through. What more can I say?

It's just so atmospheric! It really lends to the other bridges and overall view. Also a great short cut between the banks of the Tyne.

It's an impressive bridge, set in an iconic setting, surrounded by the other bridges, the Sage, the Baltic and various buildings on the Newcastle quayside. If you get the chance to see the bridge open it's worth it. We visited on a Sunday morning when the Newcastle quayside market was on and enjoyed our visit.

For any visitor to Newcastle, a walk across the Millennium Bridge is a must. You get great views of The Tyne, Swing, High Level and Redhugh bridges and a wonderful view of the Quayside.
