We drove across the bridge, may be thats why it just seemed like an average bridge- may be if walked across the bridge we would have noticed the difference! next we visit will try walking along it.

This is an icon and has to be seen, admired, enjoyed for its architectural beauty and crossed. And the kittywakes have enjoyed making it home too.

There are bridges and there are synonymous bridges. The Tyne Bridge is unmistakeably, Newcastle. What a pleasure to see and walk along an engineering marvel that's not just a bridge but world-wide recognised icon.

This bridge will take you from Gateshead to Newcastle and back again. It is quite attractive to look at if you like engineering and that sort of thing

I love crossing this bridge, I like to walk under it, I like to see it and I like to photograph what I can only describe as Newcastle's most iconic symbol.

We are blessed to have so many lovely bridges in our country, and so many really old ones, It is a marvellous piece of engineering standing proudly over the Tyne, have now crossed it and stood under it in awe. I have to admit that I was over the Sydney Harbour Bridge before I was over the Tyne. Another must... More

It is unlikely you miss this iconic bridge. Whether you travel on the train or on your own car, you will most probably see it anyway. I walked over the bridge several times and I really like the Victorian lights.

It is a nice place to visit when in Newcastle, the bridge is centrally located and a landmark that you absolutely have to visit. also, some nice restaurants in the area.

This is a truly awesome old bridge. It was copied for the Sydney Harbour Bridge by the same designers. I love the huge struts and columns where it is fixed into the banks.
