“Iconic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

I get a shiver down my spine every time I travel North across the Bridge into Newcastle... you get a real sense of arrival.

“Glad I did this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

With time on my hands I decided to walk across this great bridge from Newcastle to Gateshead. Views amazing, Returned to Newcastle side over the Millenium Bridge. Took too many photos. None better than are already posted. The engineering of this bridge is fantastic...under the bridge it looks just like it had been dropped from outer space...huge support pillars fitted in around the buildings are amazing.

“Historic architecture and a symbol of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Impressive structure with the sweeping arch over the Tyne just another testament to the trading glory of this historic port. I was very interested to find out that both this and the Sydney Harbour bridge were influenced and based on the same bridge.
