Gateshead lies on the southern bank of the River Tyne. Its quayside was historically a busy industrial port, but is now a centre for culture; both the Sage Gateshead and the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art are visible in this picture. Originally part of County Durham, Gateshead became part of the county of Tyne and Wear in 1974 and together with Newcastle upon Tyne on the north bank they form the urban core of the Tyneside conurbation. Gateshead and Newcastle are joined by seven bridges across the Tyne; the silhouettes of the Gateshead Millennium Bridge, the Tyne Bridge and the High Level Bridge are visible here.
