Newcastle upon Tyne is a true regional capital that clings to the north bank of the River Tyne that hosts seven city bridges. The most famous of these bridges is perhaps the great arched suspension bridge that carries the A1. The oldest of the bridges is the Robert Stephensons high combined road and rail bridge that was erected in 1849.
Between those two bridges is an elegant swing bridge that turns on a central pivot, built in 1876. All the other bridges are 20th-century bridges, one carries the metro and the over, and underground railway system that first opened in 1980.
Running along both sides of the River Tyne is the Metro that connects Newcastle with various historic attractions and the sandy beaches at Whitley Bay and Tynemouth, with more beautiful beaches up on the Northumberland coast if you head a little further north.
