The Tyne Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne

4.7
#3 of 29 in Sightseeing in Newcastle upon Tyne
Bridge Tourist Spot
Officially opened in 1928, The Tyne Bridge is the most celebrated of the seven bridges that link Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead across the River Tyne. The bridge has become such an icon of Newcastle that it's displayed on the logo of the popular Newcastle Brown Ale. Be sure to bring your camera along, as the bridge makes an ideal photo opportunity. A keen eye might spot some similarities between the Tyne Bridge and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia, as they were designed by the same engineering firm, with Sydney Harbour Bridge built just three years later.

  • The Tyne bridge is definately a piece of Newcastle history, with great views, lovely walks around the area. There is a lot going on at the Tyne bridge and around it on Sunday mornings with a great sunday market with various stalls and zipwiring from the Newcastle side of the bridge over to the Sage on the Gateshead side. Great place to visit for anyone
  • Great views and lots to see. Beautifully‚Äč lit up at night.
  • Great views. Very busy dual carriage way, unable to cross to other side once on the bridge. Choose your viewing direction before going on to the bridge.
  • It's magnificent. A great piece of engineering.
  • When l was in Newcastle the first thing I did was to see this great bridge and walk across it the view was spectacular with the other bridges all in a row up stream and then l walked back , the thing about Newcastle is the people are friendly,I only stayed one night and I liked to say it is worth visiting this great city.
