Staying alongside the waterfront, this bridge was very near. It is a great sight and provides a brilliant short cut to the centre of the city for dining, shopping and other attractions within the city itself.

We used to live near here growing up before the bridge was built, it now makes a great shortcut from the hotels to the sage, it also looks good lit up at night

We were walking across the Tyne bridges and this was the final one on our walk. A stunning bridge that sits happily alongside all the other older bridges closeby. The quayside is very pleasant to wander along.

Lovely piece of engineering. Gorgeous bridge with walking and cycling access. It is even more fabulous on a night when it is illuminated with different changing coloured lights. Even has seats on the bridge to relax and enjoy the view.
