The Port of Tyne encompasses a number of sites regarded as culturally important including Tynemouth Pier & Lighthouse and the Swing Bridge at Newcastle upon Tyne.

Both the North and South Piers have been designated as Sites of Scientific Interest and the Port continually liaises with English Nature about these areas.

The Port of Tyne maintains the mechanisms of the Swing Bridge at Newcastle upon Tyne; built by Sir W. G. Armstrong in 1876 the bridge is still in perfect working order and swung on request from river traffic.
