The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist tilt bridge spanning the River Tyne in England between Gateshead’s Quays arts quarter on the south bank, and the Quayside of Newcastle upon Tyne on the north bank.

Opened for public use in 2001, the award-winning structure was conceived and designed by architect Wilkinson Eyre and structural engineer Gifford.

The bridge is sometimes referred to as the ‘Blinking Eye Bridge or the ‘Winking Eye Bridge’ due to its shape and its tilting method.
