Nicer than average bridge, that becomes amazing
Sep 2021
Not a lot to say about it. It's a slightly nicer than average bridge and it crosses the Tyne, but I must admit that during The Great North Run it becomes a thing of beauty when it lined with the people of Newcastle and Gateshead

Walked over the bridge & under it. The walk over is a good experience. Go in the evening so can park for free nearby. The river front, beneath the bridge, is OK. Not enough to do. Seems a popular place for drunks, but lots of families around as well. The surrounding areas aren't very nice so stick to the touristy bits.

A beautiful bridge.

This is a wonderful and impressive bridge from the architecture point of view.
However, it looks much less glamorous due to the neglect and graffiti scattered all over it.

Kittiwakes

As you go closer you realise what a seriously impressive structure this is. From the bank of the river underneath the bridge you marvel at how high the structure is.

The kittiwakes that nest on the bridge can be heard from far off. They do create quite a ruckus but you can read about them on a signage nearby. It’s the largest nesting colony so much inland into the city.

Iconic Structure
Jun 2021
We walked across this iconic bridge from Gateshead to the Newcastle Quays and back across the Millennium Bridge. It is an amazing structure and a credit to the engineers who designed and built it!

The obvious symbol of Newcastle's historical engineering skills and wealth, still an iconic sight sitting, as it does, high above the river and quayside

Singularly excellent at crossing water

I totally got from one side to the other without getting wet. I cannot ask more from a bridge than that.
