Explore world-class cultural venues on NewcastleGateshead’s Quayside and take artistic photos of the seven bridges spanning the River Tyne.
The banks of the River Tyne and the thriving Quayside area of NewcastleGateshead form the city’s most fashionable district, packed with top cultural venues. The river views alone are simply stunning, graced by no less than seven iconic bridges.
On the Gateshead bank is the curvaceous, shimmering Sage Gateshead. One of the world’s premier music venues, it’s home to The Royal Northern Sinfonia and hosts fantastic concerts.
Also here is the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, housed in a towering former flourmill and free to explore. This is also the perfect place for lunch or a cocktail with a view at SIX, its rooftop restaurant and bar.
Then cross the River Tyne on foot via the unique Gateshead Millennium Bridge, which links Newcastle and Gateshead. Nicknamed the ‘Winking Eye’, it’s the world's first and only tilting bridge.
