A small version of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This one was built before the Sydney Bridge. Worth seeing if you are in Newcastle, not particularly spectacular. Walking underneath you can encounter some pretty foul smelling bird droppings.

Is there a bridge much more iconic than the Tyne Bridge in Britain? As is well known it was the inspiration for Sydney Harbour Bridge, and it is a joy to look at.

We had a great time walking from Eldon Square down to and along the Quayside. This brought in some excellent views of the seven bridges that cross the Tyne, the best of all being the old Tyne Bridge. Now, for someone who used to live in Australia, this area does not exactly rival the Sydney Harbour Bridge, but you can... More

We walked over the bridge a couple of times during our stay. As well as admiring the ancient architecture, if you walk at night, you get a beautiful view of the city

Yes.This is indeed the most iconic of the seven bridges that cross the river Tyne.Built in 1929 by Dorman Long who also built the Sydney harbor bridge.Linking Newcastle and Gateshead this magnificent construction is part of what we enjoy during our visit to the area.Either looking up from the quayside or looking down,just a great place to be.
