We were thrilled to actually see this bridge rather than the usual images of it. Great views either side and you can see the Gateshead Millennium Bridge which seems almost side by side! Thrilling stuff!

Linking the two thriving communities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North, to Gateshead in the South, this Tyne crossing is a bold, highly-distinctive piece of dramatic engineering. All other bridges over the Tyne, feats of bold engineering in themselves, pale into insignificance compared with this. Superb!

This bridge is very attractive and it makes a great centerpiece of the string of bridges crossing the Tyne at Newcastle.

You get great views from the bridge but also great views of the bridge from the Quayside or the other bridges. The bridge looks very impressive from every angle.

This is a must bridge to walk over. Fantastic views from both sides, try to be there when the Millennium Bridge opens, times are shown by the bridge.

Is walkable distance from the Monuments or Central metro station, just follow the signs on the road. Worth to visit and walk on the bridge. Beautiful view from the bridge .

Driving across it from the South, keep to the outside lane, unless you're going into town. Beautiful entrance to a wonderful toon.

a visit to the tyne bridge is a must in a stay at Newcastle, geordies know they are home when they see this magnificent site, the red arrows fly over it thousands of people run over it in the great north run, thousands of vehicles travel over it
