This is a wonderful way to arrive in Newcastle, either by day or night, looking along the river at the other bridges. It is a fantastic road and rail bridge designed by Robert Stephenson.

We had a nice walk across the high level bridge which ends up in Gateshead. The view down the river from the middle of the bridges and the Quayside is lovely

Surprised to see that it was functioning both as a road and railway bridge, as I’d read in a book recently that it had been closed for structural repairs. Mind you the book was written in 2004. So I was delighted to see it open...More

This is one of the series of bridges over the Tyne. From here, due to the height you get really good views of the Swing, Tyne and Millennium bridges along the river. Worth a visit.

You get great views of the Tyne Bridge when walking across this bridge. You can also see the Millenium Bridge in the distance. There’s a display board just before you cross the bridge, giving you information about the bridge and some illustrations as well. It’s...More
