King Edward Vii Bridge Reviews & Ratings
This is possibly the greatest bridge in the entire world! It was built by the Victorians purely for the entertainment of the passenger on a train that is waiting for a platform to become available at Newcastle Central Station. It is a little known fact that there has been a bridge on this site since the days of King Arthur and Merlin. One day Merlin woke up and said "Arthur we need a bridge on the Tyne and the fog will be yours". It took Arthur and merlin over ten weeks to build the first Tyne bridge and two years later they were stuck on a train when searching for some legendary cup (allegedly) when merlin turned to Arthur and said "that bridge you told me to build looks good, now where's my f*****ing fog?", to which merlin replied "the fog on the Tyne is all mine, all mine", "I keep it on a jar in my kitchen!".
It's a bridge ffs, but does the job it was designed for.
Nice bridge on a nice walk along Tyne river on the Hadrian way.
Google has got it's placement marker wrong. This is the High Level Bridge, not the King Edward Bridge. The King Edward bridge is 2 bridges up river.
