Who ever knew where the world's smallest drawbridge was in Bermuda! What a treasure! We loved this stop. Built in the 17th century, it has been a stop for many tourists. You can view the Cathedral Rocks from here as well as see fish swimming in the waters at the base of the bridge. A short walk to view the... More

The Somerset Bridge is the smallest drawbridge in the world. It's definitely a neat place to stop and see for a moment and take pictures. It's even more awesome to do it from the water on a jet ski. Great to read the history and hear about it. Definitely stop and take a look when you are in Somerset and... More

Read about briefly online -originally wasn't on my must do list but was part of an island tour we booked. Glad we went because our group found it very interesting and I would have hated to miss it. A tribute to human resourcefulness in resolving a navigational challenge.

We took our scooters all the way from St. George's Parish on the far side of the island to see this attraction. It was fun for me to walk around it and read the instructions of operation. If you like to get your geek on, take the time to visit this little gem.

We had the bus driver drop us off at the bridge so we could check it out. The bridge itself is a novelty at the drawbridge portion is only wide enough for the mast of a sailing boat to pass by. The views of Ely's harbor on one side and the Great Sound on the other are pretty.

Unless you're paying attention - you'll go right over it without knowing it. We were fortunate enough to be with the #1 tour guide in Bermuda and she told us all about it! PS Don't Blink! :)

This tiny bridge opens to allow sails through. By no means is this a destination for your trip to Bermuda, but if you happen to be traveling over it, stop off and get the obligatory photo of yourself with a foot on either side of the bridge. Like I have in my title, don't make a trip specifically to see... More

It's okay-just don't make it the hi-lite of your time in Bermuda-you hardly know its a bridge-we did not go out of our way to see it,but when we passed over it it was nothing to write home about

You need to rent your jet ski with H2O and ask for Stefano and you will get to pass under the Bridge, I don't know what it is about going under the bridge but it's the best experience. I guess I love my life and every moment was the best.

This is supposed to be the world's smallest drawbridge. Nice spot for a few pictures... not much else to do here though. Definitely a cute little drawbridge though
