90 years old this year, this is the nr. 1 symbol of the north-east and makes a great sight either from a distance, best viewed looking upstream, or up close from the wonderful quayside.

This is the classic green arch bridge of Newcastle and the Tyne. Built in the 1920s, a walk across this bridge gives great views of the other bridges up and down the river. Equally good are the views of this bridge from the Quayside.
