Millennium Bridge

Lovely to see and walk over. A very popular attraction and there is also the Quayside which is Lovely to walk along too. Plenty of places to grab something to eat and get a drink.

We Northerners enjoy a good bridge that's why we have so many. Take a walk across The Millennium Bridge at night when it changes colour the reflection in the River Tyne joins up hence the nick name the Eye.It's great!.

The Quayside has under gone a huge revolution and one of the main eye catching features is the Millenium Bridge which links the Newcastle Quayside close to Malmaison to the Baltic on the Gateshead side. Well worth passing by on a night to see the bridge lit up in all of the different colours. There are ample bars to try... More
