Millennium Bridge Coaster

Millennium Bridge, Newcastle/Gateshead

 

The Millennium Bridge, known locally as the blinking eye, is a pedestrian/cyclist bridge across the River Tyne connecting Newcastle's Quayside and Gateshead's Arts Quarter. Designed to tilt (blink) to allow passage to large ships, it is the world's first and only tilting bridge, and is the 7th of Newcastle/Gateshead's famous Quayside bridges.

 

A must-see landmark, especially at night. The bridge's lighting was specially designed so that it can be fully illuminated without causing light pollution. The everchanging colours add to the magical atmosphere of the Quayside, and can also be set to specific colours per a person's request for a whole night.

 

In addition to the bridge's special lighting, there have been occasions where it has been lit specific colours to mark specific events. For instance, the Millennium Bridge was lit blue and yellow on 25th February 2022 as a mark of international solidarity with Ukraine and in 2015 was illuminated with the colours of the French flag to show solidarity with France after the Paris terror attacks and again in 2016 after the Nice terror attacks.
