Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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.
