Tyne Bridge was marked in the fourth-place position, narrowly losing out on a top-three finish to London’s Millenium Bridge.

The high number of Instagram posts ranked Tyne Bridge above Hull’s Humber Bridge (64,796) and Bristol’s Clifton Suspension Bridge (88,783).

Despite over 100,000 posts, it wasn’t enough to secure Tyne Bridge a top spot finish.

Instead, London’s Tower Bridge finished in the top spot and miles ahead of the rest, with an impressive 2,601,739 posts on Instagram relating to the bridge.

Comments from the research collated by Compare the Market said: “Almost 100 years after it was built, the bridge is still considered a defining symbol of Tyneside.”
