Tour Summary

In this interactive gallery tour groups will cover 2000 years of history from the first bridge that was built over the river by the Romans. Groups will learn how bridges like the Swing Bridge played an important role in shaping the city’s heritage and how the Tyne has acted as the life blood of the region. This tour is great for supporting topic work focusing on rivers and their impact on the surrounding area.
