Tyne Anew sits at the tip of Northumbria Quay with a prominent position overlooking the River Tyne. The iconic abstract sculpture is a tripod standing at a height of 21 metres and is by the American sculptor Mark di Suvero. His works are recognisable in style and he has installations all over the world. The sculpture has been designed with its setting in mind, often mistaken for a shipyard crane which inspired the design. The distinctive, bright coloured steel pieces balance and interact with the surrounding space. Northumbria Quays is a great place to watch ships come and go on the River Tyne as well as the busy Royal Quays Marina. Nearby is the International Ferry Terminal where DFDS ferries sail to and from Amsterdam on a daily schedule. Northumbria Quay hosts regular cruise ship arrivals as well as visiting naval vessels.
