This is what you call engineering. Look at it study it remember its build date. Then walk under and over on it its terrific. Clever stuff at the time and still very grand.

I love that feeling when you fly home from a holiday back to Newcastle and you first see the Bridge again!

Not to be missed, an iconic statement of Newcastle and the engineering that went into it. Not as sunny as the Syney opera house, but just as unmistakable.

Why is this being reviewed at all? It's a bridge, yes a famous and iconic one, but still only one of a number of bridges that cross the Tyne between Gateshead and Newcastle. You use it to cross the river.

The Tyne Bridge is the thing that you think of when someone mentions Newcastle, so you should go and have a look if you are visiting the City.

the city is a good mixture of old and new architecture, the bridge gives you that retro vibes , its actually quite high from the ground which give it a unique look

This bridge connects Newcastle to Gateshead and Sunderland. I would say if you're in Newcastle then you're bound to visit this place. The bridge looks great from the riverside and if you want the complete view of the bridge, go to the millennium bridge and take nice pictures. I used to cross this bridge daily, when you're crossing the Tyne... More

Probably Newcastles most recognised landmark, it would be a shame to come here and not stroll across the bridge. Takes a leisurley 20 minutes or so to walk across and back. Goods views of the town and its river. Wide pavements mean it is perfectly safe and no traffic hassle. Well worth the walk

Go the low swing bridge to get the great views. Have a lovely stroll around the area. Coming at night is great as you get great reflections off the water
