Welcome to Gateshead
Gateshead is a large town in Tyne and Wear, England, on the southern bank of the River Tyne. It is located across the Tyne from Newcastle upon Tyne to which it is joined by seven bridges. Together they form the urban core of Tyneside. The town is known for its architecture, including the Sage Gateshead, the Angel of the North and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art.
There has been a settlement on the Gateshead side of the River Tyne, around the old river crossing where the Swing Bridge now stands, since Roman times.
