Bridge End is a village in Northumberland, England. It is situated to the west of Hexham, on the north bank of the River South Tyne.

The North and South Tyne actually meet less than one kilometre downstream from the village. There is a pleasant walk from the Boat Inn along the bank of the South Tyne to the meeting of the waters. The Boat Inn was formerly the place of a ferry until the toll bridge was built across the river. The toll house still stands, but the old bridge was replaced in 1904 by a County structure. One of the two plaques on the bridge records that the contractor was W. T. Weir of Howdon-on-Tyne. The Newcastle and Carlisle Railway crosses the river by a strongly built iron bridge.[1]
