Gateshead Millennium Bridge Secondary Resized DC

Gateshead Millennium Bridge - the world's first and only tilting bridge - is a must-see landmark in NewcastleGateshead.

Designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects and engineered by Gifford, the bridge takes its place at the end of a line of distinguished bridges across the River Tyne, including the Tyne Bridge and Robert Stephenson's High Level Bridge.

Linking Gateshead with Newcastle via Gateshead Quays (described as one of the best places in Europe by Tony Blair) and Newcastle's Quayside, the bridge not only serves a functional purpose as the River Tyne's only foot and cycle bridge, but its grace and engineering attract people from all over the world.

Anyone travelling on a pleasure boat up the River Tyne will pass under the bridge and those watching from the banks of the river will join the thousands who enjoy this view every year.

For more information on tilt times and to upload your pictures of the bridge please visit the Gateshead Millennium Bridge website.
