Arriving from the south you will see this remarkable urban landscape at its best, heightened by the bridges spanning the Tyne: High Level Bridge, the oldest, Swing Bridge, Tyne Bridge and the Millenium Bridge (2001), a marvel of technology and aestheticism. Here you will come across an eclectic cityscape of old and modern buildings dedicated to music and contemporary art. The walk along the Tyne, lined with hotels, pubs and benches, is very popular.
