Named for the new Millennium but not opened until late 2001, the Millennium bridge is an eye-catching piece of architecture on the River Tyne. Many cities have designed Millennium bridges but the Newcastle/Gateshead one is exceptional. It lies just beside the Baltic Gallery east of the Tyne bridge and it can rotate 90 degrees to allow ships to pass below. Unfortunately we didn't get to see this during our trip but it must be a spectacular sight. The bridge is a nice addition to the six other bridges spanning the Tyne.

Address: Tyneside
Directions: Links Newcastle with Gateshead near the Law Courts and BALTIC
