Really useful bridge

The bridge crosses the Tyne allowing traffic and pedestrians to cross from Gateshead to Newcastle and back again, as many times , as they wish and all for free.

Took a wrong turning coming back from South Shields and brought us into the city centre but things happen for a reason. Have been to Newcastle a few times but never been over the bridge until then. Glad I did.

The Tyne bridge is a great symbol of Geordie Land, and it's free to visit! It gives a good view of the Toon and it was made by the same Northern firm who built the bigger Sydney harbour bridge. It gives a good view of the swing bridge and the quayside which are worth a stroll too. The Tyne bridge... More

Fun for the whole family and the fun doesn't stop there because if you like this bridge then you will love the Fourth Road Bridge in Scotland. Both are well worth a visit. Hats off to a great design team for creating two wonderful, yet two uniquely different architectural masterpieces. These bridges are not just a big piece of eye... More

Quite simply the greatest bridge ever built, an instantly recognisable monument shoved between amazing edwardian buildings. Mark Knofler, take a bow.

You couldn't travel and visit Newcastle without going to visit this iconic bridge. Worth a visit if in the area

Walked across and enjoyed both the view from and the feel of the structure. Well worth a visit. The traffic makes the bridge vibrate but this seems to add to the feeling of solidity. rather like Ironbridge.

Walk across this bridge and see all the others. You get a great view from up here. It is solid and busy with traffic but has classic K trusses.

If you ever find yourself wanting to pass from Gateshead to Newcastle, or (for some unknown reason) the urge grips you to want to leave Newcastle on a southerly trajectory, then the Tyne bridge is for you. This is a bridge of outstanding quality. Not only will it provide passage over a river, it looks amazing too. Whenever I feel... More
