The Millenium Bridge is beautiful on it's own, but put together with the other bridges over the Tyne, plus The Sage & The Baltic make Tyneside a spectacular sight, with loads to see and do.

Me and my husband walked across this bridge and it was amazing as I'm not from the northeast and I'm from the south of uk but I like living up in the Northeast with my husband.. You will like this bridge.

We have walked over this bridge several times on our way to the Sage and Baltic. It's a great feat of engineering which we were lucky enough to see opening to allow a large boat to pass through

OK it's just a bridge, but what a beauty! This iconic structure spans the river Tyne joining up many good attractions on either side of the river. It is very impressive at night as it lights up in a variety of colours and is quite a spectacle. If you are in the area, pop down and have a look.

I have walked this bridge since i was young and have always enjoyed looking up and down the River Tyne. It is also a quick and easy way to get to the other side of the river and is great to walk when you are a couple or with your children. Really recommend to do it

had a nice stroll along the riverside past all the bridges, ending up at the Millennium Bridge. Good spot to look back up the river to capture a great view.

Very impressive structure, looks great day or night and great for photos and selfies. Very modern and a great focal point for the quayside, well worth a visit - recommended if your in Newcastle.

It is what it is and you do not realise how big it is until you stand next to it car park with vans selling coffee and ice cream and no parking charges
